The day’s real work began with the usual Meet & Greet. We have just 8 passengers who will be with us for the week, with additional individuals joining us for various days. Because the sun is setting much earlier now (19:30), we left the dock at 14:30. At 16:23 we saw a group of spotted dolphins; this is extremely early to see them, but we were pleasantly surprised to continue watching them until well after 17:00. During this time we had two water entries & observed Romeo (#10), Split Jaw (#22), Lil’ Jess (#35), Swoosh (#36), Billy (#64), Nemo (#76) and un-named #78 & 80. It was a fabulous day! And although I enjoyed my time in Nassau & was happy to have the experience, I was reminded that it is Bimini that feels like home….and these dolphins that truly spark my curiosity. Until next time, Kel
