Our Atlantis Vacation Part-2

:: Tags: Dylan, Fun, Photo, Travel, Wildlife
Hanging with the dolphins at Dolphin Cay – Atlantis, Paradise Island, Bahamas

While vacationing at the Atlantis Resort, we opted to try the park’s dolphin adventure at Dolphin Cay. They have all different levels of interaction that tourists can choose from including snorkeling or swimming with the dolphins to just watching/taking pictures while they perform tricks. For Dylan’s first time being around dolphins, we decided to go with the less intrusive shallow water touch and feel adventure. This easy and comfortable in-water experience lets you get up-close and personal with the dolphins in only 4 feet of water. This worked out well in that it gave Dylan a chance to see just how graceful and gentle these beautiful creatures are without scaring him from how powerful and aggressive they can be in open water.

I myself have been scuba diving with trained dolphins on several occasions while in both the Bahamas and the Cayman Islands, and have always done so with dive operators who allow their dolphins to come and go as they please using open sea pins. When diving with them, we are always in open water and they not confined in any way. While I sometimes have a problem seeing dolphins in captivity and being made to perform for tourists, I can only hope that they are being well cared for by their trainers and the park.

I’ve finally had a chance to edit the video’s from this past weeks fishing trip to Eagle Nest Lodge in Manitoba, Canada. We hope you enjoy watching them as much as my brother and I enjoyed making them! We’d also like to send out a huge thank you to our guide Troy at Eagle Nest Lodge, for not only putting us on the fish every day and making this a great trip, but for also making my son Dylan feel like he owned the place! Kudos, Troy!!

Our Summer Euro Trip – Hunting With Hawks!

:: Tags: Family, Photo, Travel, Wildlife

Me and my new hunting buddy ‘Wilde’  – Ireland’s School of Falconry, Ashford Castle

One of the activities that we wanted to try while staying at Ashford Castle was to spend a half day at Ireland’s School of Falconry and learn about hunting with falcons and hawks. After a shout tour of the facility and a crash course on Falconry, we were introduced to a couple of Harris Hawks named Swift and Wilde who we would be flying this morning for our Hawk-Walk around the grounds of the castle. We took turns flying the hawks with several other members of the family as we hiked down secluded trails in the forest. As you can see from the photos we had a blast. This was an outstanding activity and I would highly recommend it for anyone visiting Ashford Castle.

More From Colorado…

:: Tags: Photo, Travel, Wildlife


During our trip to Winter Park we found some time to get away from the slopes for a little sight seeing. We took a day off in the middle of the week to hit Steamboat and then another half day to tour around downtown Denver. On our last day in Colorado we took a long detour to the airport and hit the town of Golden Colorado to see the America Mountaineering Museum. This was such a great trip and we covered so much ground it felt like we were driving all over the state! Here are some photos from our sight seeing detours during our stay in Colorado…. Enjoy!
