Boating in the Golden Isles

We saw two dolphins today while boating near Fancy Bluff.  One was fishing, going up the river near our house.  The other was spouting, blowing spray into the air.  It was just a lovely day for boating in the Golden Isles.

Cormorant with Wings Spread

Cormorant with wings spread to dry.

Cormorants on the Dock


The cormorants were everywhere when we went on our one boat trip before the weather got really cold.  They dive for fish.

Cormorants do not have water proof feathers, so they have to dry out their feathers. When they do, they sit with their wings extended in a characteristic pose.
