A fine day. A simple day. A calm day.

Fine weather.

Smooth, long, deep waves. Remnants of the hard western winds that bore down on us a couple of days ago.

And a minke in every tour.

What more can one ask for.

Rain in the foreseeable future. Some winds.

Autumn draws near.

A light breeze blew on us throughout the day.

 

A humpback in the morning, a couple of minkes at midday, and a few dolphins at the end.

In all regards, a pleasant but quiet day.

 

The voracious Atlantic Mackerel is making its way into the bay these days.

That might mean we will see fewer humpbacks in the next few days, due to the fact that the mackerel goes for the same fish that the humpback is here for.

But it might also mean we will see more minkes, going for the mackerel.

 

The mackerel is a fast swimmer, but I have seen what those minkes can do, so I have full faith in my sleek little friends to teach those mackerel a lesson.

Three trips today in good weather. 

 

A distant humpback on the first, really far out and in a bit of hurry.

On the second one, we went most of the way to Akranes, where we caught sight of one heading north, and on our way back we saw yet another humpback.

 

But on our third trip we were in for a treat, sailing as far out as we could, we found two humpbacks, practically dancing under the waters.

Probably a mother and a calf, maybe a large female and a very small male.

So that means they were either playing, or... playing in a way they are supposed to do in the winter.

 

Either way an entertaining show.

The outlook is good for the coming days in regards to weather and it looks like the humpbacks are chasing fish into the bay.

So things look bright all around.
