Code Blue (For Exercise, For Exercise)

So we had a morning in Killybegs, Ireland with a quick tour around the place.  Nice countryside, but not a lot in the way of birdies though.  We did have 3-4 big bottlenosed dolphins come in and very briefly bowride as we left the port, but unfortunately they didn’t stay long.  A flock of 50+ Manx shearwaters as we got a little further out was nice, and the sunshine was also quite pleasant.  The ship was contacted shortly after leaving by the Irish Coastguard who wanted to run a practice medical evacuation from the ship, and as always the ship was willing to cooperate, as it is just as good practice for the ship and crew as for the coastguard.  So we had a visitor onboard this afternoon!
