Photo Hunt #6: Nautical

Posted by The Queen Bee at Saturday, February 14, 2009





This week's theme for Photo Hunters is nautical and the first thing that came to my mind is the sea. The photo above is a shot of the boats that drove tourists to the dolphin site in Bohol. There were several boats that time but we weren't that fortunate that day because the dolphins were not in the mood to have a show that day. We ended up having sun burns that really hurt a lot. The sunblock and sunscreen that we bought were useless.

Mathematically speaking, ship captains and seamen studied in school to learn the theories behind navigating a sea craft. Hence, it really amazes me how these bangkeros know which way to go from islands to islands because they haven't learned those calculations of nautical miles. Wonderful! This is my entry to Photohunt this week. Check them out and see what other photohunters have.

I think the bangkeros just knew it thru experience, they've been on the business since the day they were born. :)

Good shots of the Bohol seas and the crafts.

Sorry you got sunburned and didn't see any dolphins. We went snorkel in Hawaii one time. After we got out of the water some dolphins came. We put our snorkel gear back on but by the time we got back in the water they were gone. One lady said they were swimming right below her!

Thanks for visiting me.

They learn from their fathers and friends, just as we did. Very nice shot.
