We finally had our first sail of the season. We had to get our boat from Plymouth down to Falmouth to have some work done on her. The weather has been a bit on the chilly side for sailing, but on Friday 5th the wind was in the right direction, we had the offer of help from a friend, and the forecast wasn't toooo cold! We wrapped up warm and had a fabulous sail (and I wasn't too seasick). The best bit was we had four dolphins follow us for about a quarter of an hour. I got a couple of photos and Vince got a video of them. We reported the sighting to Sea Watch and they put our sighting on their sightings page, which made me feel slightly important!
and from our pictures and description they were identified as common dolphins.

um, not sure how to embed a video, try this link.
I'm getting really into my book workshop stuff at the moment, so more news on that coming up.
I'm thinking of starting a separate blog for books, is that a good idea? Hmm, I'll think about that a bit more...
