Here is a riddle and you have to try and guess it. It's and animal it lives in the water, its a mammal, it begins with D, they are the smallest type in the world (so they are about the size of me).
I didn't think you would guess it. Its a Hector Dolphin and you only find them in New Zealand and I swam with one this morning.
This morning we set off in to town , when we got there we got sorted into our wetsuits then we got on to the boat had our picture and went off in search of Dolphins. The boat was faster than we expected and we saw one quite soon, me and dad had been up front when we saw a black fin bob up we knew it was Dolphin because the guide had told us to look out for mickey mouses ear bobbing up. A hector dolphins fin isn't actually pointed it is a very round and curves in at the back. We didn't swim with it though because by the time we all looked it had gone. The next one we saw was interested in us which was great as wild Dolphins can get bored very easily.
We then got in the water in our wetsuits. Surprisingly the water felt warm and I stayed in the whole time, now you might think that's the end but no I've got something even more amazing to tell you. One came up close to me and swam around me three times about 20cm away, now that is what I call awesome!
Now I have done all these things on my trip so far, I'm not sure that there will be anything else to do as i'm only eight. I did want to go bungee jumping but you have to be ten to do that.
When we are in Thailand we will probably go snorkelling. Now I am going to put one more word to sum up what we have been doing that word is AWESOME!
I'll write more as soon as we do another thing see you soon.
