SANDWICH (CBS) – A dolphin off of Cape Cod apparently decided it was no match for seas that swelled to around 30 feet in the height of the 2013 blizzard.
While WBZ-TV crews were monitoring coastal conditions during the storm, some bystanders spotted the dolphin taking refuge, swimming in between some docks at the marina in Sandwich Harbor.
“This dolphin was just circling around, hanging around,” WBZ-TV reporter Christina Hager noted in her report.
Hager explained that the area where the dolphin was swimming is very protected from the wind and waves.
“The seas are too rough out there so he’s coming in where it’s just a little calmer and he can ride it out,” one of the locals pointed out.
The WBZ-TV crew also noted that they picked their particular live shot location in Sandwich Harbor because it was somewhat protected from the elements.
