We had time to spare

We had time to spare and as there was a lack of manta rays, I asked if we could return to the coral reef in the hope of seeing more turtles. We saw three more turtles taking the day’s total to five. On the return journey to the resort afternoon tea was served in tiffin tins. The sun was getting lower and with the rhythm of the boat, the hum of the engines and the motion of the waves I began to doze off. However, something caught my eye. Then I saw it again. I shouted over the engines to Maeva who told the captain to head towards a pod of spinning dolphins that were about half-a-mile away. We were soon surrounded by a two-hundred strong pod of dolphins, showing off with their jumping and tail-spinning, this was the perfect end to a perfect day.
