Seniors visit dolphins

A group of vivacious local seniors from the John Gray Memorial Church recently visited Dolphin Cove on one of their monthly outings.

The park’s staff gave an educational talk about dolphins and then let the dolphins perform for the spectators.

Some of the group made their way down to the water’s edge for a chance to touch their first dolphin.

One senior, 74-year-old Rupert Ebanks had never seen a dolphin up close before.

‘I had seen them from far away before, when I was out fishing, but this was my first time touching one. It was just beautiful,’ he said.

The group of about 30 seniors, organised by Carol-Anne ‘Nannie’ Ebanks, meets monthly to socialise.

They sometimes work on craft projects and also get the chance to ‘gad-about’ through various island outings.

Among the seniors was 100 year-old Julia Hydes, who also visited the dolphins.
