It would be cool to see something like that. He said it was about 18 feet long!
If you've been going to the shore a long time, maybe you can answer this question.
Have you been seeing dolphins ever since you began going to the shore? Or is that something relatively new?
When I was a kid in the 1960s my parents used to take us to Ocean City, NJ, and I also went there a few times in the early 1970s.
In those years I don't recall ever seeing a dolphin, or hearing anyone talking about seeing them.
But in the early 1990s we had a family gathering at a beach house a little ways south of Virginia Beach and we saw dolphins every day.
Then in around the late 1990s we had a family gathering at Ocean City, NJ, where we had gone as kids. And again we saw dolphins every day. And we were on exactly the same stretch of beach as we went to as kids, near the music pier.
Were dolphins around in the 1960s and 1970s, but it just so happened that we didn't see them? Or have their populations increased?
