Just off the beach in front of the Sonoran Sea and Sonoran Spa Resort Condominiums it is common to see dolphins frolicking and jumping above the surface of the Sea of Cortez almost year around. They are such fun to watch and the opportunity to see them, though frequent, never gets old.

By the time we tallied the results there were 248 photos submitted and 7250 votes cast! All we can say is thank you to all the photo winners below and to everyone who participated in the contest.
