The southern winds chase away the usual cold. While it was not quite as warm as being in Spain, we were able to be comfortable without wool mittens. We set sail straight away. Since the southern winds come over land, the waves don’t pile up like they do from the north and the seas stay much flatter.
When we came closer to Viknafjoll we came across several humpacks. Two of them were teamed up and had some incredibly beautiful synchronized blows, dives and fluke displays.
We took a detour around Fish Rock and could clearly see the dwarf birches changing colors. Although the southern winds brought a hint of summer, it is clear that winter is not long off.
