Paddles with an Anas acuta...... unashamedly biased toward the sea kayak of that name (actually the voyages of two boats, one 'traffic over gold', one 'quill')

Brief encounter

Zoom in on the image and, despite the limitations of my snapshot Pentax Optio W10, you will see a fin cutting through the water. A Risso's dolphin broke its rapid progression down the coast well offshore by suddenly shooting towards me, fin and back out of the water. Submerging just when collision looked inevitable, it came up on the other side, circled me at speed for a minute, then resumed its course. An animal living life in the fast lane.
