Better Late Than Never, Moonlight…

Hi Everyone,

Typically, on my one day off (Monday) who eventually shows up at Chanonry with her young son but our lovely Moonlight !

I was getting a bit twitchy as she is normally around with the rest of the gang much earlier in the season and it took a chance visit to Chanonry at totally the wrong state of the tide by my pal Alan Ward to get a photo as proof that she is around – just being very sneaky.

There were some other dolphins around over near Fort George but Moonlight and her young son were close enough for Alan to get a good fin photo – good job my friend !

Now I just need to see her myself and then get out to sea to find Spirit and then I’ll be a happier bunny.

Best Wishes,

Charlie.
