16.04.2017 – Caviar for breakfast
Today is Easter Sunday! And what do you do on this day? Search for Easter eggs! What, if you go out on the ocean? Are these Easter eggs then caviar? Surely we do not eat caviar; nonetheless we went out to search. The first successful sighting of an “Easter egg” was a broken football ball, yet not from Ronaldo, but we took it out anyhow because it doesn’t belong into the ocean. So we went on. Folks of birds everywhere; Dolphins here and there and in between huge Baleen whales (so we heard from our spotter). We met the pretty Common dolphins, we saw the funny Cory’s Shearwaters and we examine the odd Portuguese-man-of-war. Daniel fished one from the sea and the guests had the chance to gaze at this unusual creature. Surely we put her right away back into the blue. Our boat Ribeira Brava was lucky to find Bottlenose dolphins in addition. But only our spotter saw the thick “Easter eggs”, we didn’t find these two Baleen whales, but anyhow our Easter egg search crop was pretty good.
