A sunny winter day :)

Today feels like summer, a sunny bright day, flat sea and no wind. Only the chilly air out in the ocean reminded us we are still in January!

We enjoyed the sight of few groups of common dolphins which were really calm just like the ocean. Likely, they were part of the same group spread out and split in subgroups, with some individuals resting and others socialising. They accompanied us for a while with their elegant and fluid movements. Few lazy yellow-legged gulls were also resting at the surface.

On our way back we enjoyed the coast with its little lovely towns. A well spent morning! 🙂
