“Man has always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much...the wheel, New York, wars and so on...while all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man...for precisely the same reason.” ~ Douglas Adams

On a somewhat overcast day recently, Bruce and I decided to headed into downtown St. Petersburg - he for walking - yours truly for shop-browsing.  While in a store, my cell rang and Bruce began to tell me excitedly that just past the marina there were nearly ten dolphins hugging the seawall and frolicking about. I took off at a pretty quick clip (for me) - swung by the car to pick up my camera, and headed to the seawall.  The dolphins had begun to move further out by the time I arrived, though  I did manage to get off some shots. We stayed for quite some time just enjoying their play as they moved about hunting for fish.

I managed to get this shot right when I got there - the dolphin was literally at my feet!  Then they began to move further out, but still kept us entertained.  It was a wonderful experience!

Just wonderful!


  1. Bravo! Mucking about looks much more fun, indeed!
