|One look and we knew these weren't the type of dolphins we most commonly see. Instead these were Common dolphins (even though they are quite uncommon to us out on Jeffreys Ledge!)|
Today is only the second time the Granite State has ever gotten the chance to see this particular type of whale. Interesting enough our first sighting was last year on September 27. Almost one year later and we got the completely unexpected opportunity to spend time with these whales.
