Bahraini dolphinos May 23, 2007Posted by Aella in Bahrain.
I had forgotten how much I enjoy being out at sea when we went in search for the dolphins the other day. It was pure bliss (again) riding the waves of the Gulf. Just sitting there letting the wind and sun caress my face. The smell of the sea, my little daughter closing her eyes enjoying the boat ride, the site of the dolphins gliding so gracefully through the water, all things that made me feel great.
We did see dolphins but unfortunately I didn’t manage to take any great pictures of them. You mainly saw their backs as they were gliding in and out of the water. Still it was so nice to see them. Apparently they were bottle nose dolphins.
As we stood there looking at the sea and it’s creatures two boats passed by at really fast speed. It was the Bahraini coast guard chasing a smaller boat. The smaller boat threw a large grey box overboard and shot off into the distance. They were too fast for the coast guard that after some time came back to pick the box up. The people on the tourist boat next to us became a little curious and steered their boat in the direction of the box but the coast guard quickly snatched it up in front of them. Wonder what was in there?
