Dolphins at sunset...

Last saturday, we were sailing back home with a 4-year-old cousin of mine aboard. We asked her "do you want to see some dolphins?", and her answer came out so excitedly we had to tell her we might not be able to find them... they might have gone home to have dinner. We've seen them several times this summer, and the sea was so calm and beautiful we thought they were about to appear by the boat... And they did. Imagine the child's reaction.
The number of dolphins wasn't great (some dozens, though), but their performance was the most spectacular we've ever seen.

El sábado pasado, cuando navegábamos de vuelta a casa, se nos ocurrió decirle a mi prima de cuatro años, que venía entusiasmada en la proa, que podíamos ir a buscar delfines. Inmediatamente después de decírselo tuvimos que contarle que tal vez estuvieran cenando o durmiendo, por si acaso. Los hemos visto varias veces este verano, y esta vez el mar estaba tan tranquilito que "tenían" que aparecer... Y aparecieron. Así que imaginaos cómo se puso la niña.
No eran demasiados (varias decenas, eso sí), pero daban unos saltos espectaculares... a lo mejor sabían que iba la niña a bordo.
