JUMPING FOR JOY

They’d done it!  They’d outlasted and outlived COVID19.   The world was back to as normal as it would get.

At last the borders were open.  They could finally re-visit Charleston.  They’d been three previous times, each visit finding something interesting in Old Town – The Market, haunted houses, Churches, and toured a submarine and an aircraft carrier, over at Patriots Point.  Twice they’d taken the boat to Fort Sumter.

Living near the Great Lakes, they were used to expanses of open water, but a lake trout breaking the surface did not compare to the joy of watching dolphins chasing the tour-boat.

  5. Nice little story! We have dolphins here in the York River and whales over at Virginia Beach. I need to go see them again.

  6. People who have never seen one in the sea have no idea how magical an experience it can be. I like your view of the future.

    I am with you here. I too live next to one of the Great Lakes. While it is a beautiful area and I enjoy walks near Lake Michigan, it does not quite compare with the sea.
