This morning we did the phone link to the aquarium. It was a quiet audience but Kristy asked a lot of questions, so we got to share some stories about our trip. Then we checked in at the phone company about getting a phone installed in the new apartment. In typical island fashion, the credit card machine isn’t working, so we will have to wait for it to be fixed to get our telephone. The boat left at 1500 and started the day with a murky snorkel stop at Atlantis. Maria practiced using her new snorkel equipment and tried to get a hang of free diving. Then it was off to the dolphin grounds, where we first saw dolphins at 1715. It was a group of moms and calves, including White Blotch (#29) and her calf. They were traveling so we followed them, waiting for an opportunity to get in the water. Then we came upon a group of juveniles, including Tina (#14). This time we were able to get in the water but only for about 10 minutes. Visibility was quite poor, but it was still a good day. Tomorrow we have our weekly presentation and another boat trip. Until then, Kel & Maria
