04.08.2016 – Morning Stillness

For me, there is no better way to start the day than on our morning trips.  The sun has just risen, there is a stillness hanging in the air left over from the previous night; everything smells fresh; there is a fresh breeze; the ocean is still void of boats; and the animals are well rested and full of energy. The mornings are always filled with anticipation of what this new day will bring…. what species will we see today? What kind of guests will we get on board and what kind of great interactions will happen as a result?

This morning, we got to see one species after the other! Pilot Whales, Bottlenose Dolphins, and Atlantic Spotted Dolphins made our morning trips a big success. As the dolphins were gliding through the water right next to our boat, I was happy and grateful. This is the best way to start any day!

      Dear Tomasz, thank you for your concern. Today everything seems to be a lot calmer and the fires should be under control. Now it is important to help those in need and work together for a brighter future, in the end everything will be fine 🙂
