MtLawleyShire sees Dolphins at Matilda Bay

So there we were, my friend and I, at our favourite table overlooking the Swan river with uninterrupted views to the city on this hazy, humid afternoon.  The boats in the yacht club against that sky were intriguing with the heavy shadows and the bright light:

Then the surface of the placid river was disturbed

Was that a fin?  No!  Two of them!

they were rounding a shoal of fish and the birds were there too:

It seems to me there was a little argy-bargy going on every now and then:

Then they were swimming away and out of sight:

and the birds followed them

I wish Id had my zoom lens on but there wasn’t time to change.  Damn it.  But it was lovely and such a special experience 🙂
