Celebrating an anniversary and a birthday aboard the Súil Eile on an overnight trip to Inishmore, the Jones family received an unexpected guest.
Whilst out fishing (and catching!) some pollack, the Joneses caught the attention of a few our our distant, sea-bound mammal relatives. Although uninvited, the Atlantic dolphin (pictured) was warmly welcomed and, fortunately, quite friendly.
No, the Joneses’ new friend did not stay for dinner, despite what we may have implied with the headline and the photo. No dolphins pictured are tuna-friendly.
Nor were any dolphins harmed during the making of this exceptional overnight Aran Islands adventure.
