Daymer Bay-Padstow Dolphins Today

So was I the only one today to see the Dolphins off the Doombar today??

I hasten to add it was a rather special moment & a very BIG surprise as I saw one beneath me first, quite literally surprised the life out of me as I was windsurfing at the time! It then jumped out of the water right next to me, I could have touched it I was that close, but bejesus I was not expecting it

There were at least 4 possibly 6 including a tiddler jumping all around me as I crossed from the doombar to the channel swells.

This was about 4.30pm not long after the crabber racers had headed in.

I stopped by the ribbers moored up by the lifeboat station, not sure if you guys are here, thanks for the wine & biscuits hope you had a great day I certainly did

Magic! I was in Padstow last week and took the rib for a blast but was not as fortunate as you with the dolphins.Regards Jim PS Greetings from the proper Gillingham.
