Day One-Hundred and Ten ... A Baby Dolphin

Today we made an unexpected trip the Mirage Casino and went to Siegfried and Roy's Secret Garden. There were tigers galore, beautiful tigers. There were dolphins. Very active and frolicking dolphins (I think this is the first time I have ever used the word frolicking ...). The big cats were knocked out from the heat and having a serious midday siesta. Cats are cats, whether they are two feet long or ten feet long, evidently.

Luckily, during the second walk by the white tiger area a couple roused and walked over to the water to play and cool off.

I have never before seen a baby dolphin. The amount of times I have even seen dolphins in person I can count on one hand. There are no dolphins shows at the Secret Garden. It is purely an educational facility and people can walk around and see them. We were fortunate enough to see all the dolphins out and about and very active.

Seeing the dolphins and the tigers was a gift and a beautiful one at that. There is so much beauty in nature and a casino in Las Vegas was a surprising place to find it.

Good night,

Look at the trees, look at the birds, look at the clouds, look at the stars... and if you have eyes you will be able to see that the whole existence is joyful.  Everything is simply happy.  Trees are happy for no reason; they are not going to become prime ministers or presidents and they are not going to become rich and they will never have any bank balance.  Look at the flowers - for no reason.  It is simply unbelievable how happy flowers are.
