Oh my God! There were dolphins in the river near my house yesterday! Dolphins! DOLPHINS!!!
For those who don't know, dolphins are not a common sight in the Yarra River, although this isn't the first time they have swum upstream from Port Philip Bay either.
Alas, I didn't see the four bottle-nosed dolphins with my own eyes. Dagnammit! It's so unfair. I walk along that river nearly every single day and I'm always squinting - usually in vain - at every little eddy and protrusion in the water hoping to spot a school of fish or other aquatic creatures.
And finally, when there was something really worth seeing, I missed it! The dolphins were spotted in the Yarra upstream from my house around the time I arrived at work, so I probably just missed them.
But still. Just knowing that there were dolphins in the river fills me with glee.
