After all, what don’t we use our smartphones for these days? They not only hold all our entire contact list, but we also use them for music, videos, to take pictures (and store them), games, and to utilize our various social media applications. It constantly makes us wonder, and worry, just how bad it would be to lose it.
But when we go on vacation that’s the time when we feel like we might want to finally disconnect ourselves from the technology we are so dependent on. It’s a time to unplug and let go. You can sit on the beach, feel the sun on your face, and relax with a book in hand while listening to the soft sound of the waves. No one can bother you or interrupt. No more annoying WhatsApp group messages or Facebook notifications.
And that can be an amazing feeling, until you start wishing you had it at your side again. Because let’s be honest, isn’t one of the points of travelling and being on vacation to take pictures? Is it really worth it if you can’t capture the moment on your phone to share with others? These days a vacation in the age of social media means that having your device on you is a must have, at the very least so you can snap a few important pictures for your Instagram. So then imagine the feeling when you suddenly lose that ability and don’t have your phone?
Well, one woman in particular had to face this challenge, but it didn’t end quite like she expected. Back in 2015 Teressa Cee was on a trip to the Bahamas when she decided along with her companions to maximize their trip by having some fun, which included taking a boat out and interacting with dolphins.
Unfortunately for Teressa, her time out on the open sea took quite a turn when her phone took a tumble into the depths of the ocean. What no one could have predicted is who would come through to lend a hand, or a fin, to her situation. What happened that day out on the water brought sheer joy to everyone who was able to witness it, including the millions of people who saw it later on social media. It’s a story that is sure to bring a smile to your face.
