Lovely!


Some years ago we were walking along Poole Quay and decided to go on one of the boat trips. We were lucky enough to have a pod of dolphins escort us for some of the way. It was lovely to see them right alongside and playing in the bow wave  >biggrin<

There was a great clip of dolphins riding the bow wave of a jet-ski off Durlston Head, Dorset on our local TV news last night, but I cannot find a link.

When I was crew on Sea Otter a Royal Air Force Launch on a nice calm day I used to often stand at the pointy end watching the Dolphins swimming along side us as they would criss cross the bow some times for thirty minutes or more brilliant.
