Wish granted

from 21 49 s 11 58 e
One of my fondest wishes was granted today. I saw an albatross flying out at sea from the boat. These majestic birds must have been with us for a couple of hours. Wow, can they soar, skimming along the surface of the water, one second only a foot above the wave, the next second their body tilts and they are ten meters off the surface. Their wing span is enormous and they have special bones in their wings that help them soar so beautifully.
