Pirates on the high seas

This morning we set sail as pirates aboard our pirate ship Quatro ventos, in search of ocean treasures. We soon came across something shiny like gold, a playful group of common dolphins. It's always a pleasure to see these dolphins, especially on a day like today when there are some waves for the dolphins to surf. We spent some time with the dolphins, watching them play around our boat and bowride. We also searched a bit further out, and although we didn't find other cetaceans out there we got some nice views of São Miguel Island in clear blue skies. On our way back inshore we found our friends the common dolphins again, this time accompanied by a young loggerhead turtle. It was another nice adventure for our crew and passengers alike.
