November between the storms





















Newquay Pier was deserted, you could hardly get a whiff of chips and yet...
Verena and I watched a dolphin show much better than people pay to see, in Whale Jails all around the world. Not captive dolphins ripped off from the wild , genuine wild Cardigan bay dolphins just going peacefully about their business all for free! for just Verena and me...
Yesterday Cliff and I went to New Quay to have a look for Bottlenose Dolphins. We've been there about half ten and luckily the first Dolphins appeared in the distance showing nicely. The Sea was flat calm, so we had good chances to spot them. They were spread out over a large area and some of them came close to the harbour wall. There must have been plenty of fish, because we could see the dolphins hunting. After that first pod disappeared we saw some more dolphins, leaping in the distance and then again coming towards us. We can't be sure if they were the same ones or not. All in all there were about 10-15 Bottlenose Dolphins, including 2 calves. We had a great day at New Quay enjoying the Dolphins.
