Our big day was creeping closer. The day we had been anticipating for months. What are the chances that I would book it on the coldest day of our two week vacation, well it turns out I did. We were shivering just thinking about it. I called a few days ahead and managed to change our day to the following day, Wednesday October 31. It was definitely warmer that day but still not overly warm. I am used to celcius but I believe it was around 55 degrees when we got there in the morning and only hit somewhere in the low 70's by the early afternoon. We got there at 7:45 and there were a few people ahead of us. We got signed in quickly and got our complimentary photo taken. We got the first dolphin swim of the day at 9:20. We went to get our wet suits and we asked for full length ones. They were not fun to get into and they were even worse to get out of but at least I didn't have to deal with that at the moment. My husband and I went to pick up prescription masks which was great. I probably would have been ok without it but he would have had a lot more trouble. The girls tried to eat breakfast while the boys were still dealing with wet suit issues. I was to nervous and excited to even enjoy my breakfast. We went for our pre swim video and then went to the swim area. Our dolphin was Lester and apparently he is in his early forties. There were no surprises for me. I had read so many trip reports and reviews over the past few months that I felt like I had actually done this before. My husband had decided not to do the swim and he was very delighted when they called him in to get in the family picture.
