Whale and Dolphin spotting

Today we had an amazing boat ride - althugh we didn't see any whales we certainly saw lots of other amazing wildlife.  It started well with purposes swimming under the boat; we then visited the RSPB island of Grassholm, home to over 39,000 pairs of breeding gannets, the 3rd largest Atlantic gannet colony in the UK and watched them flying over us.  Then we went out into the rich waters of the Celtic Deep where we enjoyed seeing a puffin and 2 different dolphin pods (including a 6 week old calf).

 Then we looked round St Davids where we enjoyed looking round the cathedral, a pub lunch and an amazing ice-cream.  
 Later this afternoon we went to Newgale beach which is  2 miles of sand backed by a huge pebble bank formed after a BIG storm in 1859. The girls enjoyed paddling, body boarding, kite flying and sand castle making.
