Thank goodness -- in the middle of gray nowhere, White-Sided Porpoises arrive to play with the boat. These appealing small cetaceans enjoy fooling around with moving vessels; they can outswim a 6-knot boat like FM easily, and delight in crisscrossing our bow, jumping across our path and diving under the forefoot, etc. They never fail to delight me; all boredom and engine noise forgotten, I would race forward with the camera and try to capture their apparently joyous play.
