7 AM came swiftly to our team for the morning session

A picnic to Tabyana Beach in the afternoon and then data entry and an evening presentation

The morning sessions are easier to handle for our surface observers as the sun is not as high and the temps not as hot nor humid. Everyone did well … though it seems the dolphins still hold several folks at rapt attention. J There was a good amount of social activity seen from both above and below the water surface: large amounts of splashing and bodies rolling and rubbing one another at the surface are a good indication of socializing, and sometimes play or aggression. The younger dolphins were chasing one another and rubbing. The younger males were practicing with erections and attempting to rub on anything near them. Luckily they ignore me! Alita and Fiona kept closer to Mrs. B and her calf (Mr. French) for the most part. Paya was still intent on Cedena and Rita and pair swam with both alternately. The afternoon had our team taking a short break to picnic with the other guests at Tabyana beach. It was my first visit there as well. Tabyana is a very nice (picture-perfect) beach with white sand and a reef just off shore within easy snorkeling distance. Several of our group even took the “Canopy Challenge” and took a high-wire tour through the rain-forest of the island. Their trek ended with a monkey visit. A Good Day! Cheers Kathleen
