Saturday 10th of January
It was quite wet, windy and wavy today. But fortunately it was rather warm, so even though we got soaking wet, we were not freezing at all:) We went out with two zodiacs and many excited people. First we had a look out in Vestfjord, where the waves were….interesting, and after a while we turned into the more sheltered Tysfjord and searched the area there. We checked all our usual places, but without success. We did find some sea eagles though and we had some fishes for them. We gathered and looked for shelter in the harbour of Korsnes, next to the lutefisk factory, to eat a piece of chocolate and drink some warm toddy. After this we went into the waves in Vestfjord again, and with very suitable music for this day (think: “Singin’ in the Rain”, again) we headed back to Sjøvoll. The many snorkelers ended the trip with a bath in the harbour. I wonder which was the wettest part, being in the water or being on the zodiac?
So, this was it! The last trip of the season…. We couldn´t find the orcas today, but we´ve had a very nice and beautiful goodbye yesterday! Today we faced the waves once again and had another nice day on the sea! After all those times it´s still so great to be out there!! Just to go out in the morning, not knowing what you are going to find…. Some days the weather is nice and calm, other days it´s wavy and challenging. But you can always be sure that it´s gonna turn out to be a great day, with or without the orcas. Whatever the conditions are, I always enjoy just to be there:) How privileged we are to have the opportunity to work here, in this fantastic area, in this amazing nature!! And to share this with many interested people!!
