Dolphin Encounter

Surf life saver Dad took
fourteen year old daughter with
her two friend on a beach to
beach swim to increase life
saving ocean swimming stamina.

Swimming close to the shore
let stamina fade the fourteen
year olds splashed among rocks
grazing knees as they passed.

Crossing deeper water past a
wide bay, dolphins encircled them
containing the humans while
banging the water with huge tails.

At last Dad escaped the circle
saw a shark shadow deep below
as did another young life saver
swimming out from the beach.

Looking down at the shark, the
men then looked at each other,
swam back in side the circle.

After 45 minutes the dolphins
ceased their uproar having saved
fellow mammals from a vicious
shark attack … from skinned knees.

… five weary swimmers slowly
swam up o the beach.
