I needn't have bothered. Around the corner where the families with kids and dogs were playing, we caught a few glimpses of dolphin backs just emerging very far away; on the main spit, with the big boys and their toys, not a thing. Some years ago, Gray and I went on a whale-watching cruise off New Zealand, and spent ...
