It’s been a really bad week – this time Brussels was hit. We won’t add to the excessive publicity that these horrific deeds produce.
Last week we were on a boat in the Sea of Cortez, on the West coast of Mexico. We saw some amazing things. Whales, dolphins, whale-sharks, sea-lions, nice Americans. We also saw these rays, jumping out of the water, sailing through the air. Why do they do this? we asked. Well, it’s a bit like breaching whales, apparently. Get rid of parasites? Barnacles? Maybe. Or maybe they just really like doing this. And yes, we’ll go for that: these rays simply seemed to enjoy themselves. Joi de vivre: the enjoyment of life. So good to see.
