28.10.2017 – Smile
On our tours today it wasn’t that easy to find the mammals, which we all love. Our spotter had to work hard in this unnormal summer weather conditions (we are heading towards November and have 29º air and 24º water)
Different guests sat on our different boats, jung and old, small and big, english, french, dutch, german… but specially 2 caught my eye. They were always smiling, enjoying the light breeze from the Atlantic, the sun on their skins, the movement of the boat and the sight to the coastline. Life is so much easier with a smile on your face, cause isn’t it nice only to be on the blue ocean?
But then he (or better she 😉 was there, the first blow still far and a second, a smaller one quiet close. A mother whale and her calf, far out on our afternoon trip. Dolphins today only appeared on the morning trips, some of them in best leaping mood and this made our faces smile as well.
