My boyfriend Mike, now fiance and I had been dating for 6 years this past February. I have always wanted to go and swim with the dolphins, so we finally made our reservation to go down in March 2004. So, on my spring break from college we went down to Florida for a week. Well, little did I know that he had contacted Discovery Cove, the resort where we were going to swim with the dolphins, and planned a proposal.
We get to the resort and he tells me he has to use the bathroom, didn’t phase me a bit, but that is where he was handing off the ring to one of the employees. We get in the water and we got to swim and interact with the dolphins for about 30 minutes. It was the most amazing experience I have ever had, well at that time. Coming to an end on our swim one of the trainers says, that it was time to play a few games with the dolphin.
So, he tells Mike and I to step forward and throw this buoy out in the water and tells us that the dolphin is going to bring it back to us.
Well, when the dolphin brought the buoy back to me, it had "Will you marry me, Love Mike" written on it.
I was so shocked all I could do is cry, of course after I said yes.
So we hugged and did all that mushy stuff, and then we got out of the water, and went up on the shore. The employee that he gave the ring to was up on shore waiting so he got the ring, and got down on his knee.
It was the most romantic day of my life, and I will never forget that magical moment.
