Jen and I were on holiday in Anglesey the week before last. There's a selection of photos here, if you're even vaguely interested (or even if you're not).
Long-term Gruts readers will no doubt recall that, two years ago, fresh back from another holiday in Anglesey, I delighted them with a photograph of a heron being startled by a dolphin. How could Richard possibly top that, I hear you ask.
Oh ye of little faith! Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Dolphin, fish, bird!
It's a gift.
I know what you've been wondering all of these years. It's written all over your face: Where can I find a photograph of a heron being startled by a dolphin?
My friend, your search is over:
A heron being startled by a dolphin recently.
One of the many blurry snaps from my recent holiday.
You must have seen those silly pine-tree-shaped pine-scented air-fresheners they have in cars… Do you see what they've done there? They've made the air-freshener into the shape of the thing that it smells like. Clever marketing ploy, or what?
The other day, I couldn't help noticing that a colleage had an air-freshener in the shape of a dolphin hanging from the rear-view mirror of their car. I have never smelt a dolphin, but I don't imagine it's the sort of smell I'd want wafting through my car. Rather fishy is how I imagine a dolphin would smell. But I could be wrong.
How about you lot? Have any of you ever smelt a dolphin? If so, what did it smell like? Is it the sort of smell you'd want wafting through your car?
I need to know.
You've got to hand it to those Chinese for their lateral thinking… It's your typical, everyday problem: a couple of dolphins have swallowed some plastic that is likely to kill them; you've tried removing it using medical equipment, to no avail; you can't operate; what do you do? Thinks…
I know! What if we found someone with really long arms…
Simple, yet brilliant!
