Dolphin Spotting

Tonight, I stopped at the beach on my way home from work. As usual I put one toe hesitantly into the water, shivered, pondered, and before I could retreat I was knocked over by a wave and then I was hooked - the next hour was spent bobbing around in the water and boogie boarding. While we were bobbing around out past the break, my friend kept insisting she saw dorsal fins in the distance. I scanned the horizon, but all I could see was kelp floating in the water. When we finally called it a night and were drying off on the beach -- the show began -- two dolphins swimming south and playing in the surf. The two of us stood mesmerized for quite a while enjoying our own private dolphin show!
