This Blog serves as two things: a photo-diary of our lives between 2007 and mid 2011, when we saw some incredible things and met some amazing people; and a reflection of our more normal lives since then.

Dolphins

A regular feature of any Mercy Ship sail is the sighting of dolphins and whales, but they are usually very brief sitings. However this evening we spied dozens of dolphins off the bow, keeping pace with the ship for nearly twenty minutes. It was getting dark, so the officers on the bridge put their powerful spotlight on to help us see better. It was a great site. The seas have calmed down in the last 24 hours, and we are now sailing east instead of south, as we prepare to round the Cape of Good Hope. We will pass Cape Town during the night, and then head north east into the Indian Ocean and to our destination in Durban. Olly
