We had our third day of strong winds and choppy seas. The ferry boat ride from Paradise Island to Blue Lagoon Island was spray filled from the sea and the last bit of the trek was choppy as we passed through the cut.
Our first view into the pools showed a much decreased underwater visibility. Thus, we did not get wet today. Instead, we reviewed some computer files for grant applications and for papers. We also took a walk around the island while attempting not to be sand-blasted by the wind strewn sand!
Today was our last day at DE for 2010. We collected 5 hrs of video of dolphins and ten min of video of the sea lions. A very productive trip!
We’ll share more of a summary in our next issue of the Dolphin Gazette (due out in late November).
