On Tuesday they said: “The day after Ophelia, A exceptional wonderful sunny and calm day but Ophelia left a a few ‘marks’ on dear old Fungie.”

“You might say he has a few more beautymarks now… Two cuts… They do not look too serious and we know how fast dolphin skin heals, so we are quite positive this will just leave some scars… Fungie is fine.”
