From Sunset to Sunrise

The rosy rays of sunset and the sliver of moon... seen from our balcony.... and then listening to the waves rushing to shore all night - who would believe I also got up early to capture this lovely sunrise? Remember the sailor's ditty? "Red skies at night - sailor's delight; red skies in morning - sailors take warning!"

At breakfast the birds joined us... to watch and try for a morsel or two.

We left early to get over to the dolphin swim location and by 10 a.m. the thunder and lightning was headed our way. We were already wet with nature's most intelligent life forms - the dolphins - so we didn't much care how much more rain came down. Sadly a parasail boat sank with the high winds and waves, and we
don't have all the details of injuries. I am puzzled that anyone with boating experience would have even planned parasailing looking at the weather.

The dolphin swim was an unparalleled success. Their skin is like highly polished, and wet, leather and they are delightful creatures, zooming around the swim pool at speeds of 35 m.p.h. and leaping into the air at least one and half times higher than their own length! Pictures were not allowed.
