Azores v. 4.10

No dolphins today :( :( :( ... and a lot of wind and some swell out in the ocean.
I guess they were right, the first day was unusually good... let's hope today was unusually bad.
However, in sperm whale (Physeter macrocephalus) terms, it was great! The photos came out too bad because of the rocking of the zodiac (a great excuse, eh, eh), the following two images made the cut though :)

Notice the single blowhole on the sperm whale's left side and, on the left of the image, that white speck over the hill is the watch tower from which whales and dolphins are sighted and their locations radioed to the zodiac.

"Whale watchers usually say aaaaah when I do this"

I spent the rest of the day trying to dodge the rain on the south coast of Pico... When I returned to São Roque it was sunny...
I like this image, even though it looks like it was taken in Ukraine.

Two kids take their laser class sailboat out of the water in São Roque. In the background, that's right, Pico Mountain.

Local kids discuss ice-cream flavors in São Roque docks.
