06.08.2016 – Vento de leste
Vento de leste, the wind coming from the African desert is heating up Madeira at the moment. Therefore it is important that our guest do not forget to bring a hat. Today we had quit a few guests trying out our traditional straw hats. Piet the little boy with this nice Sperm whale T’Shirt from Sea Shepard said this very beautiful sentence: “The boat is dancing.” And to the great joy of all also the Bottlenose dolphins danced in the bow of Ribeira Brava during our last trip of the day. Amazingly beautiful!
