An early morning walk on Fish Hoek beach with a submarine, a grey battleship and a stricken Chilean cargo ship out on the stormy water. There were also lots of dolphins moving along the coast - you can just see some white specks beyond the breakers. I didn't get to see what type but the fact that they were leaping right out of the water and twisting and turning in the air makes me think they may have been Dusky Dolphins (Lagenorhynchus obscurus). But they could also have been Common Dolphins (Delphinus delphis) or Bottlenosed Dolphins (Tursiops truncatus).
