From May until September 2002 I spent most of my time swimming with a friendly wild dolphin. She is commonly known as 'Dusty' and lives off the coast of the 'Burren' in Ireland. I sought to communicate with her initially through my swimming gear, a monofin and a pseudo-pectoral 'waterwing'. Addressing her thus I hoped to learn more about her dolphin ways. This resulted in a series of reports.
