#ACYPLMacedonia in Florida -- Clearwater Marine Aquarium

I was honored to be the State Host of the delegation of Macedonian political leaders for the American Council of Young Political Leaders (ACYPL) in December, organizing a 6-day visit in December.

In between the Joint meeting of the Pinellas County Commission and Pinellas County Legislative Delegation in the morning and the Pinellas County Commission meeting in the afternoon (both at the New Courthouse building in downtown Clearwater) we made the most of the break and visited the

Clearwater Marine Aquarium

That's right, we got to see Winter! The inspiring dolphin with the prosthetic tail.  And we had a wonderful private tour of the facility with Bill Potts, and we learned more about the rescue and rehabilitation work being done.

thanks so much for the inspiring tour!

We even met Winter Claus!

my favorite part of the tour -- learning more about dolphins

even I got to sit at the desk where Harry Connick, Jr. worked during the set of the Dolphin Tale movies!
