With the fishes

Well, dolphins, actually. Big sis, little bro & co, me & a young friend of big sis went to the beach in Gulf Shores for a couple of days. After we arrived we took a "dolphin cruise".

Our intrepid sailors

What the boats looked like

The technique was pretty neat. The boats would line up parallel to each other, and sail at about 20 knots or so, generating a decent wake. The idea was to attract dolphins, who, like teenage surfers, evidently just love a good wake. Does it work?

Heh- They'll surf the bow wave on ANYTHING!!! Including a carrier, of course the bow wave on a carrier could host about 40 dolphins... Glad y'all had fun!

It looks like y'all had a good time. I'd like to do that some time.
