(Not So) Wordless Wednesday: Dolphins and Orcas and Betty, Oh My!

My Betty is fascinated (to put it mildly) with killer whales.  She is all about the orcas and, at almost 9 years old, fully intends to become either a marine biologist or an orca trainer.  She has every book out from the library on whales (from both the children's and adult sections) and is in the middle of reading Freeing Keiko: The Journey of a Killer Whale from Free Willy to the Wild. This all stems from watching the movie "Free Willy" during a rainy day at camp this summer. 

During our recent trip to Baltimore, Betty and I visited the National Aquarium and among the sights we took in was the dolphin show.  (If she can't be an orca trainer, a dolphin trainer will be just as great.)  The first picture is her favorite from the entire trip, as she has written about in several homework assignments for the past week.
