Leaving Galveston on 9/11, we had an escort of US Coastguard. The Jo Kiri had an escort of dolphins. I thought at first they were trying to get out of the way, but no, they jumped, leapt, fell, splashed and returned. This went on until the Jo Kiri was out of sight.
I have to go to pictures to tell you about vacation at this point. There was the parade for kids at 9:30 in the morning. Old people are sleeping in on a day at sea that early. But there sure were a lot of kids at heart at the parade.
Then there are the dolphins leaping in front of a ship, riding the waves.
There was the Coast Guard Escort.
There was Tulum on the Atlantic Ocean with its white sand beaches and the restaurant that followed.
