We were visiting the La Jolla Cove and spotted a couple thousand of them off the coast close to the Shores. Thankfully, we were near a lifeguard station and were able to view this spectacle through high-tech binoculars! Oh, they were so gorgeous!!! They were the most joyful looking creatures I've ever seen in my life...jumping way out of the water and playing! The entire rest of the day, I was completely awestruck! And I see dolphins every single day, but nothing like what I saw yesterday. These dolphins were smaller than the usual, and dark gray with a white belly and sides. I watched them swim toward the shore, and then back out to sea, until they disappeared off into the distance. Then another jumping pod swam through! I will never forget the Magic of watching that pod of a few thousand dolphins...one of the best days of my life!
