Yesterday DH and I were having our early morning coffee on the deck, idly watching two kayakers out in the middle of the bay. Suddenly a school of dolphins came around the point and into our bay - about 15 of them. That is beautiful enough - I don't know about you, but dolphins are utterly my favourites. They seem somehow to be more than just animals, don't you think? And I find it incredible and almost mystical that they love humans. Anyway, what was even more beautiful to watch was that the dolphins changed their course, and began to duck-and-dive in their dolphin way, right up to the two guys in their kayaks. Close enough for them to touch - The guys were transfixed, motionless - probably could hardly believe what was happening all around them. The group frolicked around them for quite a while, before moving off in their joyous way. I know how we felt, just seeing it from a distance - What those two guys must have felt!
