The Travels of the Hat, Part 2 Hurricane Season
By Beth Beutler
  

1     The gray baseball cap bounced along on the waves of the ocean outside the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Of course, he did not know where he was yet!
 
2     "I wonder where I am?" he thought. "The sun still feels good, but the water is getting just a little colder." He noticed a jellyfish floating by.
 
3     "I hope he does not notice me!" the hat thought.
 
4     As the jellyfish meandered away, the hat heard a splash just beside him. "What's that?" he thought with alarm. Then he heard a squeak and felt water spray his face.
 
5     "Who's that?" the hat called out with fear in his voice. He looked this way and that, quickly scanning the area around him. Suddenly he saw a fin!
 
6     The hat was terrified. Had he floated into shark territory? The next moment, though, he breathed a sigh of relief as he saw a smooth, gray head of a dolphin cut through the surface. He had heard that dolphins were friendly, so he relaxed a bit.
 
7     "Hi there," said the dolphin.
 
8     "Hi," answered the hat. "Do you live here?" he asked the dolphin.
 
9     "I sure do. I love it here. It's a beautiful beach with lots of friendly people. I wonder if it will last, though."
