23.09.2016 – Experience of oceanic wideness

23.09.2016 – Experience of oceanic wideness

Today we found several times a big school of Atlantic Spotted Dolphins. The sea was like a mirrow and so we managed to observe the animals also under water. We saw, how they sometimes touch each other, blow airbubbles and other kind of interactions. For example observing them how they cooperate jasing shoal of fisch (feeding situation). Besides this great spectacle, we could feel today a kind of oceanic dimension in ourselves. The sight was clear, we even saw the Desertas Islands far in the east. This high visibility of some seamiles, open up our hearts and makes us wide inside. Almost like watching the night sky with all the stars above us. Many of us, especially those who are living in cities, often miss this kind of wideness. So hopefully, we notice this positive effect, benefitting of the trips in this way.
