Into the ocean again

After a quick lunch we set out to swim with dolphins

First we encountered some Bottlenose Dolphins, and they checked us out a lot,
but never came as close as in 2007

So we went futher out to se another group, of Spotted Dolphins this time,
they were not all that friendly either,
but one came closer then the Bottlenoses and a two calves were checking me out,
but did not come close

They are wild animals, so I don't expect them to either,
they choose to do what they want to do
And I'm only there as their guest

My first Whale

First we went WhaleWatching in the morning,
and we saw Spotted Dolphins

On our way to se Sperm Whales we saw Pilots Whales

The first time I saw a real whale and there were three of them,
but far away and not raising their flukes,
but I was happy anyway just to see them :)

Bird of prey

Azorernas flagga :)

I'm back!

In 2011 I finally had the chance to go back to the dolphins

I arrived on the 25th of August and the day after in the morning I was out

And it was a big day for me, at first me encountered a big pod of Spotted Dolphins,

And later some Bottlenose Dolphins
but it ended with Pilot Whales :)

A new species for me and they are almost as close to an orca you can get,
except for False Killer Whale

They were big and beautiful,
and not as black as I thought
They were dark grey and brown, and so calm, but still playful dolphins
I'm in love!
