The ferry's friend

After yesterday's walk we felt there was more to see in Mevagissey so headed back to spend the day there today. Besides, it meant we'd get to ride on the ferry twice more. What we'd not expected was that the ferry ride home would by far be the biggest highlight of the day.

As the ferry came alongside the harbour wall, it brought a friend with it: a lone dolphin.

The dolphin follwed us the whole way back to Fowey (ten miles or so), jumping in and out of the boat's wake. Once in Fowey it switched allegiances to the Polruan ferry, accompanying it back and forth across the Fowey estuary a few more times.

I am now throughly ashamed of last year's photographs of specs on the horizon. (Was that really a year ago?) To make up, there are a few more photos from today on flickr.

Update, 19 September:
Was it Findol?
