    Absolutely loved your short film. I’ve been swimming at the Dolphin Club for many years; it’s great to see you guys in the lake.

    I’m sure others have invited you, but please come the Dolphin Club. We’d love to get to know any of you!

    Best, Megan

      Hi Megan. Thanks! I’m long overdue for another Bay swim, so I’ll definitely look everyone up the next time I get out there!
