Hi everyone! Today was another great day for dolphins! We drove to the cove, and none were visibly being herded in. After we waited for a little while, we drove over to where the fishermen’s “banging” boats are, They were gone. The fishermen did go out trying to find dolphin. We wanted a better view of the horizon so we drove up a giant hill, to a park that had an amazing view of everything from the white building of the Cove, to the horizon. I took soo many pictures! You can see them under the page I have titled “Taiji and Cove”. It was very beautiful! However, we couldn’t make out what boats were on the horizon, so we decided to go back to the Cove to see what was going on. When we arrived, everything was so still. It was a good time for breakfast, and we knew we could actually eat knowing that there were no dolphins in the Cove, yet.
I was/am feeling very nauseous today. I have a lot of allergy problems, and the new environment is getting to me. That or I am coming down with a slight stomach flu bug. I hope it’s just an allergy thing, that will eventually pass, there is nothing worse than the flu! I am also very home sick! I miss my pets, and my family… and my friends! Soo much! I know I’ve only been gone a week, but I started to think about how long I will be here and I do miss my life back home. But I have to say I am proud and happy being here and doing what it is I am doing. I feel like I have a moral responsiblity to the people in my generation to show that no matter our age, we can all do something very important. I’m living proof of that and so are thousands of other teens, kids and young adults who have stepped up and done the same thing.
It’s pouring! I mean RAINING! I don’t even think the term “cats and dogs” works here, more like “tigers and bears”! I would imagine it’s been the hardest rain in a while, considering locals told us that is hadn’t rained in weeks when it was drizzling Monday morning. Still no dolphins at the Cove. We plan on getting some dinner soon…I am posting a video of the beautiful waterfall in Nachi. Hope it’s a nice relief to go with the good news!
Thanks for the support! I’m so happy there is nothing to say! It means that the dolphins are safe for another day.
For the Animals,
