Dolphin Day

I don’t go out on the boat all that often, so when I did I considered myself very lucky to see some Dolphins.

At first I started to see the water move, nothing more than a few splashes.  I am only taking photos in the hope that something will leap out of the water.

Then nothing for a while and I think it must be a missed opportunity until I started to see movement below the boat.

I thought they were disappearing off again here ….

…. then they started to put on a show, a lovely end to a lovely sailing day!

John’s New Boat

So he finally did it, went out and bought a boat!

I bet he wished he hadn’t during the sail back from Brixham.  It was eventful to say the least, good job he was with an expert sailor because when they tried to get into Salcombe the waves were so big they were at risk of sinking!  They turned back to Dartmouth and tried again the next day, after a few false starts they got the boat back and she is sitting pretty in Port Navas.

I think a little trundle up and down the Helford on a sunny day is much more my thing!

Mylor Harbour Last Weekend

Just looked at this photo of the boats at Mylor from last weekend.  Our walk in the sunshine was lovely, it is usually quiet when all of the holiday makers go home but there were plenty of people about.  Boats still in the water for now, won’t be long before most of them are lifted out.  Looking forward to being able to take the dogs on Maenporth Beach again from tomorrow.
