Anita plays with a sea creature!
Anita had a once in a lifetime opportunity to interact one-on-one with a dolphin at the National Aquarium.
Anita’s face lit up when the dolphin swam in front of her in the tank. After feeding the dolphin ice cubes (their favorite treat!), Anita tossed a ball into the tank. The dolphin then balanced the ball briefly, before pushing it back to her for another toss.
Anita’s day-long outing also included a tour of the National Aquarium, an ice cream treat, and shopping for souvenirs.
But, the ultimate highlight for Anita was meeting her new dolphin friend up close!
