Pink Dolphin Watch

 On a cloudy, smoggy hot day the Hale family headed out to find some pink dolphins.  No we are not dreaming!  The Hong Kong pink dolphins play around the islands in the Hong Kong harbor.

 Grandma and Devon had a nice visit while watching for dolphins in the water.  A rain storm enveloped the rest of Hong Kong but only a few drops came our way.  Clouds (and smog) kept the heat at bay!  A beam of sun seemed to follow us.

 Grandpa Randy took many photos (which he has not sent me, hint, hint!)

 We saw 8 adults, 7 juveniles and one calf.  The babies are dark grey and gradually turn pink as they mature.  These are actually Chinese White Dolphins but their capillaries are close to the surface from the warm South China Seas much like our pink cheeks on a warm day.  The dolphins play in the water around the Hong Kong archipelago year round.  Below a juvenile plays beside the boat.
