Dolfinks!

Dolphin sightings are so common along this part of the coast as to be more remarkable by their absence than by their occurrence.  However, today some dolfinks put on a show unlike anything I've seen.  The sun was hot and bright, the water fairly calm, with some good-sized breakers coming along at intervals just to keep things interesting.  Dolphins passing by as usual, shooting sprays from their blowholes, ho-hum.  But then a bunch of them arrowed in toward shore, and spent about five minutes right at the line of the waves, closer than I have ever seen them come, so close that, in the curl of a wave, you could see their shadowy bodies through the glassy green water.  I ran down to the water with my trusty crapcam and waded in up to my waist.  Here's the result:



I got a couple more pictures, but nothing to compare with this one.  Now that's what I call beach replenishment!
