6. About 20 years ago, my late husband & I went whalewatching on a zodiac in the AuAu Channel

between Maui & Lanai. There were 12 of us on the boat & we were going at a pretty good clip looking for Humpback whales. All of a sudden we were completely surrounded by a pod of about 24 Pacific White Sided dolphins. As I leaned over the side to get a better look at them, one cruised right up to me, rolled on his/her side & suddenly we were eye-to-eye. S/he stayed there for at least a couple of minutes and I was frozen, mesmerized. Nobody can tell me that they aren't sentient beings. I saw intelligence, curiosity and even a hint of amusement in that eye. Too soon, the pod broke off & were off on other adventures. I will never, ever forget that very special encounter.
