A summer day in winter

Today it feels just like summer, with blue skies, a very calm sea and even some warmth in the air. It was perfect to be out on a boat this morning, enjoying the ocean, the views of São Miguel Island and ofcourse the Azorean marine life. Out there in the big blue we enjoyed the company of a couple of groups of common dolphins. It was nice to see them gliding through the calm water, often approaching our boat to look back at us. We also came across two loggerhead turtles, another reminder of summer as we often see them at this time when the water is very flat. All the way back to Ponta Delgada we enjoyed the ride bacak with the sun on our faces.
