It’s a guy that just jumped in. He jumped off the Tacoma Narrows bridge. The original one before it was destroyed. He’s a scuba diver. He’s diving off the pier. It’s a good sunny day and he’s just having fun. His name is "The salmon Run.” It’s on a bridge, the Tacoma Narrows Bridge. It takes place today. He’s jumping in the water because he likes it.
It’s cold and windy. It could be nice and cool. But it could be difficult thinking about jumping in. There’s a dolphin there. It’s tagging the people. The dolphins are playful. The dolphins are very playful. They dance for people. I have seen them dance.
What do they dance for? What food do they dance for? They dance for fish. No! They dance for Rice Krispies with milk in the morning. The guy who feeds them will hold and throw the Rice Krispies into the water. And if you pour sugar on it they like it even better! Dolphins can use their tail quite a bit and they can even stand up on it on top of the water.
What does that guy have on a 1920’s swimsuit?! He’s going to be in that water for 5 minutes. That water is probably 82 degrees. It must be down south. This guy is swimming at a zoo.
This guy is swimming at Fox Island and that is Mr. O’Leary’s dock. He’s swimming in my backyard. If that guy is swimming in her backyard she must have a lot of space and water. It must be a flood.
I would hear the noise of people frolicking in the water. I would hear splash…splash….splash.
This is Alkai beach in West Seattle. He’s diving off the pier. And the noise we hear in the background are the seagulls. Caw...Caw…Caw. (Everyone starts making bird calls-Seagull sounds.) This is Green Lake. I like that lake. As a child I used to go there and watch them set off fireworks on the island in the middle of the lake.
