Seasons Greetings

Hi Everyone,

Where has the year gone?? It’s nearly Christmas already and Susan and I are heading away on holiday for the next wee while over to the west coast this weekend so I won’t get another chance to say… Very Best Wishes for the Festive Season, have fun – stay safe and if I see or photograph anything really nice then I’ll tell you about it when I get back in the middle of January.

Thank You all for your support and comments on the blog/twitter over the last year and it’s been brilliant as always meeting up with some of you lovely peeps on the beach at Chanonry or North Kessock.

Best Wishes,

Charlie & the Adopt a Dolphin Team from WDC
