Today we returned to the ocean and had some great encounters with our resident species, the common dolphin and the bottlenose dolphin. We also had the pleasure of enjoying the natural beauty of Vila Franca Islet, on which we saw some of the species that nest there, such as the common tern and rock pigeon. In the afternoon we also had a more rare sighting of a little egret on the islet. It was a windy day, but in the afternoon the sun came out, so all in all it was another pleasant day out on the ocean in the middle of the Atlantic.
