Actually, no. Not dolphins as in the bottlenose, anyway. It's too cold. We DO have Orcas, though. Which are just as cool, and actually technically dolphins. Hell, our Orca's are the most studied group of the species on the whole planet. About 3/4 of everything we know about them comes from our resident and transient pods.

Wow. I want to see an orca. They're so cool.
We have dolphins, but not all year. Occasionally we'll get a lost manatee, and then IFAW will seriously mishandle the situation and try getting it back to Florida... in a Penske truck.

They really are. So huge, and yet at the same time so smart. Almost, if not more so, than both dogs and monkeys.
Wow. A manetee that far north really is lost. I'd like to see thatm, though. Mantee in a truck. They must speed something feirce.

Ugh. It was bad. I went to the loading, it was just lying there on a blanket. Needless to say, it died on the trip. I'd have left it in the harbor, or dropped it off in Maryland instead of going all the way to FL.

Same. Or I'd have stuck it in a hot tub.

You probably like more description and less emotion. 1st gives you emotion, 3rd gives you description.

I like to mix it up. If I'm doing a thing with a lot of action and tech, I do third person. If it's more character focused, I do first.

Strangely though, when I do a lot of romance, I go third person...its easier to flit between the two partners that way, show both sides of their passion.
