|Waking up at 4:00 AM is not such a bad idea after seeing this uh-mazing amazing sunrise from Alona Beach Resort!!!.|
|The same crew going for a dolphin watching!...We are so break of dawn-ers...hehehe|
|We waited for them to show up like for two hours! We are feeling very sleepy. Others might have actually slept through the ride...:P|
|I couldn't stop from saying WOW!!!. I'm being a kid again....hehe|
Having said that, the sacrifice paid off. They are wonderful. It's just that, it was not a dolphin watching, it was a dolphin chasing!! so go figure how we got this shot. We need to actually be silent on some moments of the trip so that they will show up. Chase them again so that we can take a closer look, and then they are gone again. Wait and then chase again. It was exhausting but at the same time exciting. They are actually wild dolphins, they do not recognize the fishermen who take tourist for the watch. They just pass by every morning anywhere on that part of the sea, and so as to enjoy the ride, we need to be taken off for a chase, which made the trip challenging and exciting. Not the way I expected, but I must say, those under water creatures took my heart away...:]
|Happy campers we are!...hehe|
This chase taught me a lot of things, perseverance, patience, and love- for the wild life that is. I also though I was not there merely for the chase, I was there for a purpose. I was there to see them so that I can help protect them in my own simple ways. They should be protected, and that we humans have all the means to do so. I mean, they have the right to live and enjoy their home- we should protect the sea! We can do it!...There is a campaign to help protect them on this website (here). I'm thinking, we should be aware, right?..xoxo!
|Next stop..guess where?..hehe|
