On a sunny afternoon recently at Fairway Bay Marina, I was chatting to one of our neighbours when I noticed some fins in the water ... dolphins! They swam up and down for several hours, no doubt feasting on the fish that are prevalent in the water here. I guess the "No Fishing" signs do not apply to them! There was about six of them altogether ... some saw a couple of younger ones in the group.
Notice the empty green grassy patch over the other side, currently devoid of people ....
This is right opposite Stella, the boat closest to where we're parked in the marina.
Alan and Karen live on the Joan Maree ... enjoying their visitors.
It wasn't long before the word was out and people arrived from everywhere. This is the previously empty green spot in the earlier photo.
People just wanted to be out amongst them, and it was lovely to see no one bothering the dolphins or trying to touch them.
A couple of girls with their dog on our side of the water ...
The dolphins hung around and were still there the next morning. Although not common, apparently dolphins—and even an orca—have been seen in the marina before.
Lucy enjoyed a quick play with this visitor before he left with his people.
