Doldrums & Dolphins

We had great winds for the first two days of our sail to the Galápagos Islands.  Each day about 4:30 or 5:00 PM we had visits from Dolphins. What a wonderful sight to see them playing.  You can see them jumping out of the water and flipping over on their side and splashing into the water. They also would come and play on the bow off the boat zipping past the bow and then surfacing for a breath of air while they weave back and forth. 
Then we hit an area of no winds and the motor was started. The winds returned once again that evening so we were able to rest without the roar of the motor.  Instead we were able to be serenaded by the lapping of the water as is rushed by the side of the boat. Part way through the next night the wind died again and we were forced to motor once more.
