Back in December we were greeted by "Peter" in the mooring field at Cooper. Here is a short video of that experience.

Thats so funny. I just got a call today from a fellow TTOL'er in Toronto on the land line and was talking about this VERY THING! This is the same fellow that we have seen there often on a particular mooring ball in Cooper. He is so fun to play with. Our family calls him "Scooby" for no particular reason. We have seen him/her at least 5 times in the last two years. He loves country music.

Additionally we have swam with a Calf/Mother pair off Monkey Point. My son announced "he feels like rubber". Apparently he was petting the calf. I called him back. "BAD" things can happen to people when the do this....in hindsight. google. <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/duh.gif" alt="" />

We had the same experience off of Sandy Cay a few years back - all of us made sure we did not interfere with the "family" - it was the momma, poppa, and baby in that group - they swam around us - it was VERY cool.

The staff at the bar told us his (or her?) name was "Peter" but it probably depends on who you talk to...
