Calm seas and great visibility almost made the encounter surreal as many of our finned friends passed on through, with the more colorful characters; as Derik Watts once said stopping to engage. Bra boys Rob, Tik and Dylan escorted the ladies (Tatti, Bo, Gilly nursery pod while youngsters were allowed to come and visit us two leggeds. At 08:30 some of the same individuals were sighted resting further offshore, this time in the company of Lolly and her newbie and Herme.
