When I was growing up, my favorite animals were dolphins. I loved them so much and I used to want to be a marine biologist or some sort of dolphin conservationalist. When I went to North Carolina, we took a ferry for a portion of the way down. I was sitting in the boat and all of a sudden I heard one of my siblings shouting at me: “There are dolphins outside!” I will never forget the excitement and joy when I went outside on the ferry and looked down and saw a pod of dolphins swimming and jumping alongside the boat. It truly made the trip so worth it.
