WOW and double WOW

dolphins 2

There are tens of whales and dolphins around us, you can see huge whales on the horizon blowing and breaching.  Lovely languid pilot whales interspersed with giddy, jumping and playing dolphins. Male and female whales with their calves. Huge sperm whales and tiny (relatively – albeit a tonne when they are born!) calves gently meandering through the still waters.

Not great when you want to race as a high pressure system is most definitely upon us, but wow, simply beautiful and incredible the sight of this wildlife. Over the last few days each watch seems to have ended with a parade of whales and dolphins and we are all awestruck by their beauty and majesty. The deck quietens and “aww” and “ahhh” are the only words uttered on deck.
