Choppy seas

Early this morning much of the island was covered in low cloud and rain. However the sky cleared in time for us to go out on our morning whale watching and dolphin swimming tours. Soon after our boats left the marina and the rain had eased we got a great view of a rainbow over Ponta Delgada:

Although the sky has been beautifully clear since this morning, the sea state has been picking up since mid morning. However, we were still able to complete our morning tours and see Atlantic spotted dolphins and common dolphins, despite the white choppy seas:

We were lucky to be able to get these trips in today, as the wind has increased more since, and it is predicted to stay windy for the next few days. Hopefully we won't be kept off the water for too long.
