Perfect timing...we JUST purchased 2 second-hand Gopros for our Goodness Hunting travels and got to test them out on the best subjects ever! We spent the day at Oceans Beach when a F.F.M. (fellow, friendly Maori) loaned the kids his flash as surfboard. I was on the beach watching when the dolphins arrived, they stayed out in the deep but 3 of them swam right in close and started playing with D and the kids! I rushed in hoping to catch some of the goodness!
It was soooo cool, the dolphins were huge, so fast and powerful. They were squeaking away to each other, riding the waves and darting under and around us. We didn't get to touch them but we got close enough to feel delight, fright, respect and wonderment ALL AT ONCE. It was such a buzz, an incredible family experience to start the year.
