Adventure precedes Adventure

As the clouds covered what little moon there was, we sat floating in the darkness of night in the middle of the water when suddenly we heard it. CHUFF! Looking toward the sound, we heard it again, CHUFF! There in the distance, we saw then, glowing in this bioluminescent water - dolphins swimming toward us.
