SPECIAL EVENT: Creation/Intelligent Design-themed whale watch with Captain Dave's Dolphins and Whales at Dana Point. A great time with Lad Alan, of Illustra Media and David Coppedge of Creation Safaris. We saw lots of dolphins, including members of a community that has recently acquired a new learned behavior, rolling over on their backs while feeding on schools of fish. Dolphins are highly intelligent creatures which can be trained by humans to perform tricks. Interestingly, they appear to also be capable of innovation, and of passing ideas, such as this new style of feeding, on to fellow dolphins. This is an example of animal culture.
Unfortunately, too few of us signed up for this special cruise, so we didn't get the large boat with underwater viewing pods. None-the-less, a good time, and good fellowship, was enjoyed by all.
