Beyond the photos, we also caught glimpses of dolphins in the ocean. Also, from the shore my husband spotted whales. Before long, eveyrone was staring out at the waves and pointin at the mist from their blowspouts exhaling. They were explained by the staff as Humpback whales, travelling form Canada to give birth near Samana. We also saw their backs as they dove into the water, waving their tails behind them!
Asthe same time that we were all watching out on the water, I happened to look up into a tree and see the smallest little black hummingbird feeding on one of the flowers (picture below). Pretty neat to be looking at two things for the first time, the whales being so massive and the bird so miniature in comparison.
