Won't you let me take you on a sea cruise?
We thought it would be a good idea to take the kids on a Dolphin Cruise. There were many to choose from, but in this cruises's ad they offered "GUARANTEED" Dolphin Sightings, so we figured we had a good shot. The cruise was only supposed to take one and a half hours, but the dolphins were a little shy that day and our captain was determined to find some dolphins.
It was a beautiful day to cruise around - we got see some of the beaches and inlets. There were some gorgeous houses in the coves. Ahhhhh, to dream.
About two hours in, we saw about five dolphins following a crab fisherman. We stalked them for about fifteen minutes (apparently you have to leave them to the next group) and then headed back to the dock. You could tell the captain was very relieved.
Each of kids mugged for the camera in their little "sea cruise" outfits.
The last picture was taken at the restaurant after the cruise. Chris was jiggling Hannah (that's why his hand is blurry) and she was making the "Ahhhhhhhh" sound. What joy she takes in simple things.
