海豚有分寸


海豚懂分寸,分到玩耍與認真。一次,一艘蛙人船因為一條貪玩的海豚不斷打擾而被迫停止海中拯救演習。

Dolphins understand the difference between play and a serious situation. Once, the crew of the boat Aquanaut had to give up its plan to practice lifesaving techniques in the ocean because a playful, happy dolphin kept interrupting the activities.

同一日稍後時間,隊中一名蛙人工作中遇溺,剛才那條海豚輕輕托那個人出水面,協助他的同伴摃他到潛水梯。不止此呢,海豚一直在船邊徘徊,靜靜察看,直至看到遇溺的人甦醒為止。

Later in the day when a member of the boating party got into serious trouble, the dolphin gently supported the man on the surface and helped a crew member tow him to the diving ladder. But that was not the end of the dolphin’s concern. The dolphin swam alongside the ship and watched quietly until he could see that the man had recovered.

「也許我欠海豚金牌,牠們用值得信賴和戲謔的方式教我泳術的精微之處。」

“Perhaps, in some way, I owe my gold medals to the dolphins. In their trusting and playful way, they taught me the subtleties of swimming technique.”
