Seasons Greetings…

Hi Everyone,

It’s that time of year again where the mountains near here are lovely and white with snow, like “An Teallach” near Dundonnell in the picture below and it’s nearly time to have our festive break.

It has been another great year for meeting you lovely supporters, answering your e-mails and phone calls and letters. Our Centres at North Kessock and Spey Bay have done brilliantly well too and we have really enjoyed meeting new visitors and old friends – we hope to see you again next year. To all my friends and dolphin research buddies – thanks for everything – 2012 season was a cracker ! In the meantime, have a safe, happy and fun time over the festive season and I’ll be on this blog again shortly after the New Year.

Very Best Wishes,

Charlie.
