Of course the day began with those Dolphins. Luckily or unfortunately which ever is your point of view, no one took a picture of Malcolm in the wet suit! Sorry Simon! It really wasn’t a pretty sight and it was amazing that the lad fitted into it. However here are a couple of pics from days gone by that I couldn’t upload yesterday as I only got one hour free wi-fi. After that it was two dollars for half an hour and the ‘ology to pay for it evaporated because the time ran out. Now is that a sensible thing?
A flower from a few days back that never made the site.
So, OK, the Dolphins. The video is probably best but they were stunning. To capture them on a still shot almost impossible but to think we used sometimes to point out to sea in Greece and say “look a dolphin!” We have never seen so many in one place and at such close quarters, probably numbering at least 100.
So there you have it another tick off me “bucket list” but I can say we did it! The Dusky dolphin life span, for it was those that we saw, is thought to be around 20 to 30 years. They mate frequently and it is not always purely for reproductive purposes! They are reputed to be the most acrobatic of dolphin species. And the one plea from the organisers before hand was “Don’t pee in your wet suit.” Which they said once you had got it on. If you have ever used one you will know it just isn’t the easiest of garments to slip out of.
The road sign that we keep passing that I really don’t like is, “Stock Effluent Disposal” which conjures up an awful mental picture to me but maybe I am alone there.
As always thanks for reading and stay well, wherever you are in the world. And you know what, these days it’s quite a small one. M & M
