Two Dozen Dolphins join us for coffee!

We have coffee for a couple of hours each morning and just enjoy watching the changing ocean.  It's not just waves, coming and going, but you really have to be here to experience it--words fall short...

So...we were figuring out our schedule for the day when Rox pointed excitedly to the south!  She said "Dolphins!!!  Lots of them!!!"

Sure enough they were coming north at a rapid pace, with a smooth ocean, it was easy to count them, as they don't stay underwater as whales do...

Of Course, taking their picture is a different matter...first you have to see them on the surface, get your old reflexes to aim the camera at them, pull the trigger, and try to entice the computer in your camera to actually take the shot...

The best one was actually done by me just pointing at the ocean and shooting and hoping for the best...

It was hard to get a shot of a bunch of them, as they don't seem to want to pose...those little circles are also just-submerged dolphins...

 

There is no doubt why the dolphins are heading north at such a rapid pace...the Montanita area is swimming with fish!!!  We have seen a half dozen "truck-boats" heading north this morning, as all the guys were telling their friends, by cell phone, that the fish were running.  How the dolphins know this is a little more complicated...maybe their sonar?

In any event, the dolphins spiced up our morning and put a little more bounce in our step...
