Yesterday, we had a tropical depression (“TD Number Ten” – it never got a name) go over. Today, the ocean was relatively calm, and the clouds were breaking up. I made the attempt to get the kayak out through the surf and see what I could see. (It only took me two tries….)
Once I got out, and did a little sprint up and down the beach – Dolphins! A group of three, followed by another group of three shortly afterward. They were close enough I could hear them breathe when they surfaced. One came up right behind my boat, no more than 10 feet away. AWESOME!!
Then, I chanced upon a flock of Common Terns chasing a school of fish down the beach, diving and eating as they went.
I tried to capture it on video, over on my YouTube channel.
A great time, and just goes to show how much of the wild you can experience, literally right outside your door, if you only go looking!
