It was nice to be able to sit on the bow, if only for a few minutes, to enjoy a beautiful day for a boat ride. Too many of these days go by without me even noticing.
Today I did.
Since I have been back to the boat, it's been about 2 weeks now...well, it's been EXACTLTY 2 weeks now but who's counting, it's been one of those trips where everything seems to happen. It seems like every day there has been some unexpected issue for me to deal with. If not boat issues, life issues from home. Some hitches just go like that.
Or, if something isn't exactly wrong at the moment but I know in the back of my mind it won't be long before that something is going to go wrong. Anyway, today I felt quite confident that I could escape the noise of the engine room for a bit and sit and relax.
Of course, my trusty camera was with me and I was a bit put off that while I was peeking over the bow, not one dolphin came to entertain me. Flying fish were everywhere but they're just a bit too quick. By the time I can even process that those darting little morsels are within camera range, they're gone.
A last visit to the bow before sunset found me no luckier than I was earlier. Today just wasn't my day to photograph dolphin. That's ok. Tomorrow is another day....for some of us.
