Dolphins!

That’s not actually my picture, it was taken a couple of years ago by someone else (https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/rare-sighting-of-dolphin-pod-making-a-splash-at-mairangi-bay-beach-auckland/UACFX7IR3G4LUWDL32ZIAHJSCM/). But… on today’s morning swim in almost exactly that same place, we got treated to the treat of a pod of dolphins swimming by! And we were alerted to them by a paddleboarder who was closer than we were… sort of like this… so it’s very representative of what happened to me.

I’ve only been in the water close to dolphins once before, diving in St. Croix. I’ve seen them from boats several times. Each encounter, even as fleeting as today’s was, is mesmerizing.
