sorry i missed those...

did have a seal jump up on the tube whilst in newquay harbour though - barked at us a couple of times and went back in the water.

i got a photo or two while it was looking cute in the water - i was too busy jumping out the way when it tried to board the boat so no pic sorry.

Talking of crusing with dolphins

"A group of up to 2,000 common dolphins has been spotted off the coast of west Wales."

Marine experts said it was "massively unusual" to see so many off the Pembrokeshire coast, and the reason remained a mystery.

Cliff Benson, who runs Sea Trust, the marine branch of the Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales, said it had been an incredible sight.

"It's fairly normal to see a hundred or so, but not thousands."

I bet they are only doing it cos they know I haven't got my boat yet - as soon as I get it in the water they will all vanish!!!!

The dolphins do it on purpose. Many times we have seen tourists parked near to our house looking out into the firth with binoculars and almost the minute they give up and drive off...up come the dolphins!

As sea users we should all be very concerned with keeping the marine environment as pristine as possible. Please take a look at The Marine Conservation Society website. We have 'adopted' our beach at Hilton-of-Cadboll.
