ID trip up the Newport River to Core Creek – not far from our office. Keith and Nan who have been doing this for decades say that October is the month when they see the absolute most air-borne leaping dolphins. My favorite photo is the one with the dolphin’s rostrum just hitting the water. Newport River/Core Creek is an estuarine River that is not very developed in this particular part (south of the bridge and north of Deerfield). There is large area of preserved land behind the dolphins
