Who is watching who?

This morning we had another great time out on the ocean, encountering some of the wonderful dolphins of the Azores. We had observation boats and also a swimming boat out on the water and all of us got to see (and some of us swim with) common dolphins and bottlenose dolphins. The common dolphins were feeding (together with Cory's shearwaters) while the bottlenose dolphins were milling at the surface and occasionally diving. After our dolphin encounters we searched further offshore where from our catamaran we encountered a large cable wheel which we removed from the ocean. Luckily this piece of marine debris was made of wood, rather than something like plastic which is a huge killer to marine life. Either way we removed the large wheel so that it can be reused for something else.
