Unexpected warm Autumn weather

You always get the unexpected if you are not expecting! This is great in most anything in life…just as the weather, and marine life! Indeed today it was not expected to be as warm and sunny as it was…and we spended a really nice 2,5 hours on the ocean.

First we found a feeding pod of Common dolphins that were racing in all sorts of directions, trying to get to their prey. Like most of the time it was a group of all ages mixed together, like a real family.

Then we went to see a pod of Risso’s dolphins that seemed to be travelling around the island, and we ended with a couple of flying fish!

Hopefully this weather stays for a while, for if you keep your fingers crossed it probably will. See you on the ocean 🙂
