dolphin cruise

We motored around several small islands with birds actively nesting. It was at sunset and the scenery was beautiful.
Most of the trees on the islands we passed were bare, showing the legacy of many of the hurricanes and tropical storms to move through in the past few years.

This pretty much the only dolphin we saw on the cruise and it was following this small boat. According to our captain, they were shrimping and the dolphin follows them because they throw back what they don't want from the net. The best part of all this...the gnarly old man pulling in the net. He just seemed so out of place with the two young, attractive couples (the girls were piloting the craft.
