You never who you are going to run into, and make friends with here around the lowcountry. On this occasion, it was a very friendly dolphin. It was obvious he was used to boats and fishermen. Probably some well meaning tourists and even locals, have fed him, but we highly recommend against that because then they tend to lose their ability to hunt for themselves and they also get injured getting too close to boat propellers.
We enjoyed his posing for the camera and his truly friendly smile from afar. And the only food he got was the bait off the hooks he stole from us before we even realized it. I think the smile was his ornery way of saying, “gotcha.” 😀
