Here's winter still in the crab trap
What Sawyer Nelson did!
He was so happy when he found out that he got to name the dolphin! He decided to name it winter. Everyone that's read the book or watched the movie "dolphin tale" knows who he is and what he's known for! He also had to break a crab trap that winters tale was caught in when a boat was coming at him, luckily Sawyer moved the dolphin, but the bad part is he lost his tail.
That was so brave of him! So if you're interested in seeing Winter and possibly Sawyer, ask your parents to take a fun little trip to Florida and go to aqua aquarium and look at the dolphins,P.S. look for the one with a plastic tail!
