Dinner Invitation

image
A family kayaking along the British coast made an unusual friend. A dolphin started swimming along with the family and entertaining them with his antics. The animal seemed primarily interested in 14 year old Lucy Watkins, especially so when he brought a 10 pound cod to withing 5 feet of her boat. Then , as if to say, 'join me for dinner' he dove and came back up with a sea bass for himself and started eating. A very nice gesture for a new friend.

Dolphins are beautiful and intelligent animals. What a neat encounter.

My grandmother would have said, "She could charm the birds out of the trees."

How quaint! For a first date he gave her a fine dinner. He must be a reincarnated gentleman.

So... did they eat the cod? Seems a waste not to.

Yes they did Richard. The story says that they took it home and prepared it to have for tea.

Much like humans, dumbledoor, dolphins have good and bad (for lack of a better way to put it) individuals. I'm sure none of us would want our entire species judged by the likes of Ed Gein, Jeffry Dahlmer, Son of Sam...ect. I wonder also how much dolphin society mirrors early human society. (think cave man days)

I'm sure that's Combe Martin situated on the most beautiful coast of North Devon in the West of England.

Right on, Harry! Google maps shows the view from here: 51.207347,-4.037583.

Cheers tadchem, looking at that Google view makes me feel quite homesick. Gods country unlike where I am now, at the arsehole of the world.

Nothing quite like a meal with the rapists of the sea
