E3, sailing and dolphins
For me, the 2010 E3 ended with a splash.
And dolphins. Lots of dolphins.
Being LA, there was nowhere to stop, so we tacked up to Malibu Beach, turned around to run downwind towards Redondo Beach for the afternoon and then beat our way home.
We had the most amazing dolphin sightings. A school of at least 20, and possibly 30 animals, kept us company for 15 minutes, in amongst the pelicans and sealions. Patrick had his trusty iPhone handy and recorded the two short segments below (apologies for the thumb, and for the unrestrained whooping – a friend of mine is convinced that dolphins are exhibitionists who respond well to clapping and cheering, so I’ve adopted his strategy).
Given that both E3 and GDC take place near prime sailing locations, I’m considering making a GAMESbrief sailing trip a regular thing. Let me know if you think this is a good idea. (I’m making no promises, mind).
