    As we approached St Anthonys Lighthouse it was decision time South, East or West! The sky was looking brighter over towards the Manacles, it turned out to be a fantastic choice. There was plenty of bird activity, Guillemots & Razorbills. It was a couple of circling Gannets that attracted our attention, we slowly approached and to the delight of everyone a pod of Common Dolphins who had one interest only... feeding! I managed to take a few photos but also had lots of the sea

    With the Falmouth Oyster Festival in full swing it would have been tempting to stay ashore sampling all the lovely food on offer! There was so much to see today as we set off, the working boats racing in the harbour, the largest single masted yacht in the world, M5, the Castle to Castle Gig race and this was all before we got to St Anthonys Lighthouse. Heading some way out an eagle eyed passenger spotted a couple of fins, these soon became lots. It's always difficult to say how many but we reckon it was in excess of 40! As we moved away the Gannets were falling like stones, this is a totally awesome sight and to top it all a small group of Harbour Porpoises. The boat came back in alongside to be greeted by Falmouth Town's Marching Band. What a day and still time to sample an oyster or two! Check out our Facebook page for some more stunning pictures.
