|Heading out to try and see the pink dolphins. Once we got out of the harbor, Hunter was sure we|
were going to sink and kept saying we're sinking, we're sinking! Once he got a life jacket on
he felt safer.
|That got Keegan going and he would then say "but dad l can't swim!. Are we sinking?"|
|The white building on the hill was the old police station that has been renovated into a hotel and is|
very pretty with a great view.
|The rock that is sticking out from the hill is supposed to represent a soldier but you can't really see|
it from the angle of the photo.
|Guide only spoke Chinese!|
|I see one!! I didn't, but Jill was good a spotting them.|
|I wished they had been jumping but most of the time it was only the fin and hump we saw sticking up|
out of the water.
|They are really bubblegum pink!! Amazing! I've heard different versions of why they are pink, from being albinos, to what age they are to chemicals in the water!|
The Chinese white dolphin (Indo-Pacific humpback dolphin, Sousa chinensis chinensis; Chinese: 中華白海豚; pinyin: Zhōnghuá bái hǎitún) is a humpback dolphin species, one of 80 cetaceanspecies. An adult is white or pink and may appear as an albino dolphin to some. Uniquely, the population along the Chinese coast has pink skin, and the pink color originates not from a pigment, but from blood vessels which were overdeveloped for thermoregulation.
