14 Jan - A battered girl

There were about 6 dolphins 300 metres out in Bay1 so I donned my gear and set off. About 200 metres out they had gathered in my path. Except for one young one they came no closer. They hung around for about 10 minutes and then swam slowly toward the outer reef. I let them go and went to Bay2.
There was a solitary fin hunting in there and I expected it to be Scratch but it was in fact a female called Blister. She had lots of swirls and marks over most of her body but they appeared to be superficial. She also looked decidedly podgy around the middle. I expect a new youngster is not far away. She was happy to keep me company for a while and then she went about her business and so did I.
