It was a sunny and perfect day for an adventure, Grace Ann finally was going to fulfill her dream of swimming with dolphins, while Odale, her boyfriend, had in mind a surprise that she would never forget, but no one really knew how the plans of a man in love would end.
The years passed but he never had the courage to approach and talk to her. After finishing his degree, Odale left the school while Grace Ann stayed to continue her studies and then work for the university.
Fate was responsible for giving them a second chance. This time they were united to have a great friendship that little by little, turned into a beautiful love relationship. They were madly in love with each other.
Four years after the first look, there he was, thinking of the ideal way to ask Grace Ann to spend the rest of their days side by side. One of her greatest dreams was to get close enough to dolphins, so Odale knew that, instead of a classic dinner, an encounter with these beautiful creatures would be suitable for asking her hand in marriage.
It was through a Facebook’s message that Dolphin Discovery got to know about this situation. Odale contacted to ask if it was possible to arrange a marriage proposal in one of the locations, and of course everyone got excited and wanted to participate.
So everything was arranged for June 19th. Grace and Odale reached one of the locations in Grand Cayman. That morning, nervous and very excited, he kept in a backpack a “Will you marry me?” sign, and the engagement ring.
When the time came, Grace Ann was very happy to swim with dolphins. So the program went on, and Odale went first to do the foot push, as he knew that he had to be on the shore to prepare everything for the big surprise.
Everything was ready, for Grace would have the experience of her life. While she was racing on the water with the help of the dolphins, she saw her boyfriend on the shore with a sign asking her to marry him. When she reached the shore, Odale took her hand and showed her the engagement ring. Then the words just came out of his mouth: “would you marry me?”
Grace Ann knew it would be a day full of adventure and excitement, but she never imagined that morning telling the love of her life “Yes, I will marry you” while dolphins jumping and playing with them. It was then, that Odale and Grace Ann had an experience that united their lives.
