    Matt and I left the heat of the home and hit our favorite beach yesterday, nearby the house....

    There were Dolphin in the Penobscot Bay....we have been going to this beach for the past 5 years and have never once seen Dolphin up here! The last time we saw Dolphin was when we lived in Florida, 15 years ago!

    Then we spotted a seal too!

    It was very hard to get any good pictures, we took maybe 100 pictures of them swimming and feeding and maybe 5 came out, and poorly at that....they were so fast, by the time the camera snapped they were back down in to the water again.

    Also had a very productive day with collecting sea glass...probably found over 60 pieces of it yesterday! Our beaches are all rocks and stones up here, so by the time sea glass is found, it is usually well beaten up and frosted over completely!

    We sat right here for most of the day just watching them....it's a lovely spot!

    Virus is similar to measles in humans...

    What's killing all those dolphins? NOAA thinks it's a virus
    Thu August 29, 2013 > Hundreds of dolphins have died along the East Coast; NOAA says that disease experts think the cetacean morbillivirus is at work; As of Sunday, there have been 488 dolphin strandings from New York to North Carolina

    Navy: Training, testing may kill whales, dolphins
    August 30, 2013 — Navy training and testing could inadvertently kill hundreds of whales and dolphins and injure thousands over the next five years, mostly as a result of detonating explosives underwater, according to two environmental impact statements released by the military Friday.
    Is prob'ly what's really killin' the dolphins.
