Paddling With Dolphins!!!!

What a beautiful Fall day!  It was a bit windy…. blowing from the south.  I ran into a paddling friend and we got down to the end of Kam 2….. when she yelled “dolphins”!  I looked out and saw two paddlers behind a pod of Spinner dolphins heading north!  I took off in a flash without saying anything to my friend!  It was great!   I counted at least fifteen dolphins!  I paddled right up to them and then they were all around me!  They emerged from the water right next to me and I fumbled in excitement trying to get my phone in place to photograph them!  They move fast!  I got three photos…. two ended up blurry…. but one did come out!  I finally got a photo of dolphins!  They zipped along single, in groups of two and four….. it was so exciting!  We paddled along with them all the way down to outside of Cove Park…… then it was getting more choppy so I made my way in.  I can’t believe I got a dolphin day!  I swam in super clear water too and saw so many fish.   I also swam with a turtle who was heading south ….. what an amazing day!
