Island In The Sun

Raft3r and the gang went island hopping in Bohol.

We saw one area where a lot of boats were congregated.

Raft3r: "Ano meron don? (What's going on there?)"

Boatman: "Dulpin, ser."

Raft3r: "Ah, dolphin. Let's go there."

Boatman: "Yis, ser. Dulpin. Piro hwag tayu dyan. Sa iba ko kayu dalin. (I'll take you somewhere else.)"

Raft3r and friends exchanged glances.

Where was the boatman taking us? The dolphins were right there.

After 30 minutes, we heard the engine stop. We were in the middle of this huge body of water with no one and nothing in sight.

A few seconds passed and the dolphins appeared!

They were that close to us I could practically smell them. One almost jumped over our little bangka (boat).

Before I could take out my camera, the dolphins were all gone.

Who knew this experience would be so exhilarating.

So Mr. Dulpin, thank you for our very close encounter with the dolphins. You rock!

dong ho said...

hahaha... mister dulpin. alam talaga ng mga bangkero kung saan ka dadalhin. good for bohol that they were able to rpotect these dolphins and instead take the advantage of giving sharing those close encounters.

stevevhan said...

hahahahahahaha, natatawa ako sobra. Pero i've been to bicol too, sometimes when we travel papuntang masbate (Our province) we also see dolphins, what i like about bicol is the view of mayon volcano!, sobrang ganda!

Raft3r said...

stevevhan, Masarap daw pagkain dyan! Hehe

Visual Velocity said...

Cool yang mga doolpins! Very intelligent and personable (unlike Bonsai), heheh

Off topic: Will ordinary DVD players be able to play a Blu-ray disc? Balak ko kasi bumili ng Blu-ray kaya lang wala kaming Blu-ray player, hehe

Raft3r said...

visual velocity, Wala ng karir si Bonsai. Hehe. You need a blu-ray player. Bawal blu-ray sa DVD player.
