The ocean was so gentle this morning. Languorous waves rolled in and seemed to caress the beach. We walked for a couple of miles enjoying the Caribbean-like colors, and looking for seashells. Then, suddenly, the dolphins appeared. There were only a few of them, but they were so close to shore that Lou Ann was able to get several good photos. We hope you enjoy this one.

    We camped at the Nat. Park last week and saw dolphins almost every day. It was amazing! Carol (not the artist, from Ohio)
