Rain, rain, yet again

We managed to get to the beach for a couple of hours this afternoon after all: we hadn't expected to be able to do so, since the forecast had been for continuous storms all day.   Fortunately they went away long enough to visit the local snake museum (an annual tradition!) and after lunch, get swim wear on and go out.

And then, the highlight of the trip, perhaps --- a bunch: at least six or seven, perhaps more, but at least six dolphins decided to show themselves, perhaps a hundred yards from where we were swimming.  And a few minutes later moved closer.  And closer still.  At one point, I'd say they were within perhaps 30 yards of us: far enough for us to feel completely safe, but close enough to be thrilling!

Yours, still abuzz with excitement,
