Three Christmas Wishes HNT

This year I'm going to "bend" the rules for "Three Christmas Wishes HNT". I'm giving all three of mine to the love of my life, Lori. Or should i say I gave them to her.

Last week I took Lori to Orlando Florida for an 8-day vacation. She spent a few of the best years of her life there when she was a girl and has always wanted to go back. Who am I to refuse anything the love of my life wants?

We visited the trailer park she lived in. The pink trailer on the left isn't the one she lived in, but it's in the exact same spot her's was.

We also went to the church she so loved.

This picture was taken in the exact same spot a family photo was taken when they went to church there.

One other thing that was on her bucket list was to swim with the dolphins. Of course she never imagined that it would happen, but it did. The day before we left Florida, we went to Discovery Cove for an experience neither of us will ever forget.

We went snorkeling with too many fish to count and rays bigger than a king size bed.

We floated in the lazy river........

........and took photos by the waterfall.

We ended our day by swimming with Dixie, an Atlantic bottle nosed dolphin.

Thanks for a great day Dixie!

Merry Christmas HNT

Well, we can let the rule-bending slide. Looks like a great time!

Glad to see you gave the dolphin a kiss. Especially after whatever you were doing with it in the first picture!

Merry Christmas, friend!
