What a change in Fungie there was in comparison to yesterday. Jen was first in and he came charging over, greeting her with an almighty jump as he approached her then one right beside her; he has this amazing ability to jump and land in the same spot, precision diving. Nick and I followed and were each greeted with flying approaches. At one point Jen, Nick and I were lined up waiting to see what action was to come next, we were a few yards apart, when he came flying at Jen, jumped over her, then jumped over me then over Nick, we were like human hurdles; It was amazing. It's great to see him so full of energy again, jumping about, as we haven’t seen much of this in the last week or so. It got the adrenalin going which was a relief, overcoming the bitter wind, the water temperature is dropping too. The couple from Holland were down at the beach, it was their last swim today, they return home tomorrow. I think they will be leaving with some great memories, and I have no doubt that we will see them again in the New Year.
The local radio station here has picked up on the Fungie Diary, and yours truly was live on air today talking about the website and of course Fungie, fame at last.
