Our first full day sailing was full of sea life! While we were sitting at lunch, a voice came over the speakers and announced that a water spout was outside. If you’re like me, and have no idea what that is, this is what it looked like:
It looked like a tornado! But we were in no danger at all.
Then, about 20 minutes later, there was another announcement. I couldn’t hear it because I was in my room, but I ran up the stairs to look out the window & I saw dolphins! Then someone shouted across the dining hall, “They’re on this side!”. And everyone ran over to where I was standing…apparently the announcement said “Starboard” instead of “Port”. He corrected himself about 2 minutes later…but by then, most people missed the dolphins.
It’s hard to see them…but you can see their fins.
And about 3 minutes after that, we saw whales!!! Well…not really the actual whale. We saw their spray. But that was good enough for me : ) I’ve been told that we will definitely see whales later on in the trip!
