Today was redemption day! Not a squall in sight, we headed out early. We have very few morning trips, so we know what to expect even less than our afternoon attempts to observe the wild dolphins of Bimini, The Bahamas. No one onboard was disappointed though as we saw White Blotch (#29) with her own calf (who is getting older), #84 (who is now independent of mom, #57) and a very young male juvenile.
You would think that these observations, plus the crystal clear water would be enough to make us feel like kids on Christmas, but the extra exciting piece is that White Blotch’s calf (affectionately called “Little Dot”) has her first spots!! They may still be too faint to officially add her to the catalog, but now we have high hopes that, as Little Dot grows, we will actually know that she was the calf born to White Blotch in 2004. Yay!
An afternoon trip tomorrow, then, perhaps, a day off,
