Sunny day with lots of whales
This morning on our beautiful sailing boat Hildur started with the most incredible weather and sea conditions. After our usual stop at the puffin island Lundey we went into the middle of the bay in search of marine mammals. A short trip later we found a humpback whale jumping several times. This animal gave us an amazing and breathtaking show for a while when it was showing off its long white flippers. During the rest of the day our luck was not running out when we saw several more humpback whales. One of these animals was breaching as well and we also managed to get a quick look at a minke whale that came by for a short visit. Most of the humpback whales on this beautiful summer day seemed to be very relaxed and surprised us with several close encounters. On our way back we were enjoying the sunshine as well as the increased wind in the evening, which made it possible to put up a lot of sails while going back to the harbour.
