Blue Monday - Blue Carpet for Dolphin Tale 2

Hello! Welcome to Blue Monday! For complete instructions, just click here.

Please leave a comment for me; I guarantee that I'll visit and leave one for you. Visit other Blue participants by clicking on their links and leaving comments. If it's too much for one day, come back later in the week.

Make someone's day when you wish them a Happy Blue Monday!

(I got some of my information from Mike Brassfield, a reporter from Tampa Bay Times.)

The Tampa Bay area's most beloved dolphin is returning to the big screen.

Winter the dolphin lost her tail in a crab trap and learned to swim using a prosthetic tail. Her story became the inspiration for the movie Dolphin Tale, which was released in 2011.

Now the sequel, Dolphin Tale 2 has hit the theaters. The movie focuses on a new baby dolphin named Hope, who also lives at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium.

With a nod toward the color of water, a Blue carpet was rolled out for the premiere of the new film, "Dolphin Tale 2" held here and in Los Angeles. Here's a picture of the the Blue carpet setting that took place this past Wednesday in Clearwater, FL (about one-hour away from my home).

Francesca Capaldi poses on the Blue carpet, dressed in a lacy Blue dress and matching Blue shoes.

Dolphin Tale 2 stars Cozi Zuehlsdorff, left, and Nathan Gamble arrive at the premiere.

"Dolphin Tale 2" stars Morgan Freeman, Harry Connick Jr., Ashley Judd and Kris Kristofferson, and was filmed around here, including the Clearwater Marine Aquarium and in the Bay News 9 studios.

I've never been to a film premiere. Have you?

Happy Blue Monday!

Hi Sally, nice lot of blues in that special event. Sounds like a good movie, too!
Yes, I've been to a premiere of an Australian film here in Oz. It was "Red Dog" released in 2011. Excellent film:

My first time visiting. I must saw I love the concentration of 'blue'. Ms. Capaldi is very fetching. MB

Dear Sally,
I'm sorry that you can not recognize the blue background
I just thought it´s blue-gray.
The next post is bluer :-)
Have a nice day

Very interesting post, Sally! I have strong feelings about dolphins and whales. I had the experience of swimming with a Beluga whale many years ago off the coast of Ingonish, Nova Scotia. I am happy this dolphin is now able to swim. I wonder if it would have been possible to put her back in the wild. Your photos, and especially the one of the girl in blue are just stunning. Many thanks for hosting!

I need to watch this when it comes out. Today I am getting the first one at the library since I have not seen it as of yet. Happy Blue Monday ;)

GranthamLynn said...

Very cool post. I would love to see the movie.

Jeanne said...

Hi Sally, I can't wait to see Dolphin Tale #2. Love the little redhead. so cute.

We loved the game on Sat night. And...we hated it too. We were on pins and needles the whole game.

We drove home from Jax on Sunday with only a few hours of sleep. Today starts the County Fair and we have a flower show to do with the garden club. Busy day to say the least. It lasts the whole week.

Happy Blue Monday...finally!
Love, Jeanne
