Delighted by dolphins!

I tried to upload this yesterday but we didn’t have any internet! We’ve just arrived around the other side of Palmarola and I’m off to laugh at the humans who are about to go for a swim! I’ll tell you all about it this evening if our internet holds out….

Oh my cat! Today we saw dolphins! Not just one, not just two but a WHOLE family. There were six or seven of them! It’s the first time in my life that I’ve seen them. They came and swam right underneath the bow and were playfully jumping to the humans oohs and ahhs! I’ve never seen such graceful creatures.

We got some great photos of them on our SLR camera, but because we don’t have proper Internet here I’m unable to upload them. So in the meantime here’s a couple of snaps we got with the iPhone! What a fantastic start to our holiday. I’m so so happy this evening.

Our passage down will never be forgotten thanks to the dancing dolphins! Unfortunately we didn’t get the sails up because there was NO wind so we motored the whole way down. We left at 10am and arrived here around 7pm. Now we’re happily anchored off the west coast of Palmarola and starting to think about a celebratory dinner to end a great day!

  2. Wowee that’s super exciting. Mummy says a group of dolphins is called a pod. Just like a group of piggies is called a herd. Whee are really enjoying learning new stuff! Do you know what type of dolphins they are?

  7. Mitzi poses a good question: do the humans fish while you’re out cruising? Have a great time and hope you get to see more neat things like dolphins!

  10. Wow, that is the coolest thing. We wish we could have been there to see the dolphins and so do our humans. Enjoy every single minute of your time on Nocturne.

  14. I was in a small boat once, bucking through some fairly heavy waves and getting scared. Suddenly all around us were dolphins. I’ll never forget it. The fear just disappeared.
