Blue whales in the bay.
This morning as we headed to the bay we did not know what to expect. On our boat Garðar we set course towards the mountains in the western part of the bay. As we arrived there we noticed the big amount of birds flying there. Soon we also noticed at least three Minke whales there. We got a grate look at them and as they were surfacing around us. While we were enjoying the Minke whale we got some news from an other of our boats of a Blue whale. The course was set right away there. After about an half hour of sailing we got to the aria where the whales where spotted before. Soon we saw the powerful spout from the blue whale not to far away. We got closer and got a grate view as the whale came up close to our boat. On the way back we enjoyed some hot Húsavík and on the way back we enjoyed hot chocolate and cinnamon rolls.
