The “Weather’s Better in the Bahamas”, you know, and that’s why I’m doing this series of posts devoted to a place that is decidedly UNwinterlike. Click here to read yesterday’s post, which includes information about the circumstances that took the older boy and me to this gorgeous slice of heaven on earth.
We saw some beautiful sights, of course, including this sparkly blue water:
And these dolphins. One day we were just sailing along and someone noticed this group of six or seven dolphins keeping pace with our boat. The thrill of seeing them in their own environment (as opposed to a show at Sea World) was incredible. My apologies for the sound quality (it was windy and we were moving along at a good clip!); just turn the sound down if it is overly annoying.
If you do watch it with the sound up, you’ll hear one of the boys say “Too bad we don’t have the dolphin striker!” We had just finished our lesson on the parts of a boat, hence his comment.
On one hand I wish I had kept the camera rolling for a little longer so I would have a longer video of this unique experience, but on the other hand I distinctly remember the moment right before I shut it off, when I thought to myself, “Get out from behind the camera NOW. Enjoy it with your own eyes!”
I’m glad I listened to myself. I should do that more often.
