Yup right in the backyard, well across the bay from Tampa a heartwarming tale is taking shape again. You see a couple of years back a small marine aquarium took on the monumental task of helping out a dolphin by the name of Winter. Winter had lost her tale to fishing line that got entangled around her tail fin. A prosthetic piece was made and attached to what was left of her tail. A miracle, Winter can swim and get by again. She will never be able to swim the seas again but she will not want for anything.
Winter has been a God send to the area. Clearwater Marine Aquarium was never a major draw but it held it's head above water so to speak. With the Winter story and the first movie this area has perked up.Just recently tried to drive around the area and it seems that the filming and other eye catching events are distracting drivers.
Well it's come to everyone's attention that some of the stars have been out walking the streets and soaking up the warm Florida sun. Ashley Judd and her dogs have been spotted many a time out walking and when Ashley Judd is out walking in a Bikini and her with her two dogs it seems traffic can come to a standstill. Yup, at 45 Ashley Judd is out there turning heads still. You go girl. Now Ashley has been spotted apologizing on twitter letting everyone know that the filming will be coming to an end soon and life will go back to normal. Stay as long as you like Ashley, we've got sunshine to burn and with the rest of the country sometimes under a foot of snow, why leave.
Dolphin Tale 2 is due out in September 2014, and if it does as well as the first there will more be happiness on Clearwater Beach. The Aquarium is wanting to rebuild at another site around the corner from where it is at now just to accommodate all the new found fame. Yes the attraction has grown in attendance since Winter has been here.
Look this is a win all for everyone. Winter is going to be taken care of. People are wanting to come to Clearwater Beach. Floridians are more than happy to welcome all new comers and those who have been coming for years to our shores. So Ashley Judd you just keep on walking around in that Bikini and Winter you just keep being so cute and all of us here in Central Florida will keep on smiling all the way to the bank.
