The weather.

 

The Weather has been rough. To say the least.

It was still rough today. But we decided to go for it anyway.

We get restless if we are landlocked for too long.

 

So we sailed out twice today.

There was nothing out there to see, except for the waves but we did our best.

I know our underwater dwelling friends will come back eventually.

 

The northern lights look ok tonight, still pending.

The weather looks a bit rough for the next few days as well.

We'll see how it treats us. 

That weather.

The weather.

Today we sailed out under, unusually clear skies.

They weren't fully clear, half clear maybe. But unusually clear none the less.

The wind was blowing moderately hard, not to rough. 

 

The creatures of the sea led us on a merry chase the whole day.

On the morning tour we headed north, where we came across a sizeable pod of 6-8 white-beaked dolphins, who bounced happily around us.

They even rode the bow for quite a while, and the two calfs were going wild breaching repeatedly.

 

On our second trip we went south, where we had to search for quite a while, before finding a young minke whale, who came up a couple of times, snout first, feeding from just beneath the surface. 

Not everybody saw that one though. They only surface for, maybe, a couple of seconds, so you do have to be quick to spot them. 

 

So we just went further north, because that one didn't want to be seen.

Nothing up north.

So we headed back.

But this is sometimes how it is when dealing with the wild forces of nature.

The majestic whales can be elusive and sometimes they seem to be ever out of reach, if only....

 

Wait a moment...

Ah.

There. Another minke.

Going much, much slower than the first one.

We get a few fine looks at that one.

So in the end, after that merry chase I mentioned at the start, we found a whale to look at.

 

Wasn't that a thrilling ride, dear readers ?

 

Now, for the coming days, the weather forecast promises us rather strong northeastern winds and a bit of rain.

Still, not to bad for whale watching. A lot better than western winds anyway (that's when you get a lot of swell).

The aurora forecast is looking really cloudy for tomorrow, with moderate activity.

Not to cloudy on Sunday, but only low activity.

 

We'll see how it goes.

We are not sailing out tonight at 22:00 for Northern Lights Tour. Due to weather conditions there is really poor chance to see any spectacular aurora show.
