So this past weekend was I.E. break, which basically means they kick us off of campus for the weekend after we get back from Brazil. Instead of going all the way home to Texas, my amazing family flew up to see me. And not ONLY did I get to see both of my parents and all 3 of my beautiful siblings, but Melissa my best friend drove up (down? over?) from Savannah to spend the weekend with us too!
Anyhoo. All of this to say.
We stayed at a cabin in Callaway Gardens. It was peaceful, and quiet, and for the most part (okay, like one day) we had most of the complex to ourselves. For the most part we just relaxed.....but one day we drove down to Atlanta and went to the GEORGIA AQUARIUM.
My mind was further blown (oh yes, it's NOT done) at the Dolphin Show later that afternoon. And this is where the title SOMEWHAT comes into play. At the Georgia Aquarium they do this dolphin show that's about this man called the Star Shooter who is essentially responsible for the hanging all of the constellations in the sky. And these evil sea monsters are after him to stop him forever!! So the star shooter and the dolphins MUST defeat the sea monsters!!!
Yes...the plot line is incredibly cheesy. But may I just say, that this actor/singer/whatever he was, had one of the most INCREDIBLE glowing, star capes that I have ever seen in my entire life. It twinkled. It was AWESOME :)
But anyhoo. The dolphin show led to the most mindblowing moment of the entire night because these creatures are SMART. They are unbelievably intelligent. They did flips, and they did synchronized swimming with the other dolphins, and they did ALL of this from a few whistles or hand motions from the human trainers. Who formed a relationship with each of these dolphins. And it sent chills down me, my sister and Melissa's spines. All of our spines. That phrase sounds weird and slightly makes me chuckle to myself :P
