Flashback. July 13, 2009. My stay in Mabul is coming to an end. Ultimate and fabulous dives, again, in Sipadan. On the way back, between the two islands, a school of dolphins accompanies for a moment the race of our speedboat ... Ultimate happiness.

There was a swell that day. Sorry... the video makes you seasick!

Despite the poor quality of this rush, I wanted to share the memory of this beautiful moment. So as not to get demoralized by today's cold and grey rain in Rennes (All Saints' Day atmosphere in the middle of August!)...


Ah ... The gray melancholy of the return is watching me.

But where have the beautiful, wonderful dolphins gone?

  1. Veinarde !!! But no, not for the gray and cold rain, but for all these dolphins !! I'm jealous!
    Most of the people in Togo had been greeted by dolphins who followed their boat ... except for us, it was the storm that greeted us ....
    Anyway, I still had a chance to see some...the return crossing...I board, I scan, I put myself on the roof of the boat to have a panoramic view, and finally I see a fin, 2 fins, yes, they are dolphins...But, they are far...too far...I even wonder now if it is not me who imagined them so much I wanted to see some...like the children who assure us that they saw Santa Claus on the rooftops... 😉
    Finally, your little movie is here, and I do not get tired of seeing it again!

  2. Magnificent ! I was lucky to see the same show in South Africa! I will remember it all my life.

    I discovered your blog just 2-3 weeks ago and have read almost all your posts! I just love it !

    I spent 2 years in Egypt diving 5-6-7 times a week and I am now back in cold Canada! Your articles help me to wait for my next trip!

    Thank you so much for sharing all this with us 🙂

  3. Ah, the melancholy of the return ... the sorting of photos and videos is a pleasure that makes us nostalgic ...
    It is at this moment that the desire to leave is tight and that one begins to think seriously about the next trip ... ➡

  4. @ Helen: Ah, the dolphins ... It always has its effect on a boat. I'm no longer a child, but I really saw Santa, just like dolphins.

    @Will: Merciiii !!! Your enthusiastic little word touches me a lot. This is precisely why I take so much pleasure to keep this blog, before, during, and after my travels. For sharing and exchanges it allows. I really have to go to Canada, so many of you are reading from the other side of the Atlantic ...
    For future articles, I arrive at the end of the sorting of my photos. I'm going to post new posts and new images very soon (especially on the island of Derawan itself, which I have not talked about yet). I still have lots of things to tell!

    @Manta: But how do you do to know what's going on in my head, right? Would not you be a little bit of travel and diving, too? Mmmm?
