Wednesday 7th of January
The day started promising with two elks on the way to the harbour. After our sightings of the last four days we had good faith that we would find the orcas today as well. We searched in the same area as where they were the past days We did what we could, but no whales today…. A pity, but on the other hand it was a very nice trip on the sea. A little cold maybe, but beautiful light, calm sea and many other animals. One eagle kept on following the zodiac for a very long time until they gave him a fish! And also from the big boat we saw quite some eagles and many other birds.
This was the very last whale safari with Leonora, our big boat. Not only the last one of the season, but really the LAST one. For this reason the zodiac people came alongside and drove around us, honking and waving:)
Around 2 o’clock we said goodbye to Leonora and in Leiknes we had another surprise. A little otter was sitting on the road and when we approached with the bus he ran away. We could see him for quite a long time as he was jumping through the snow, up to the rock carvings. Maybe he wanted to have a look over there, or maybe he wanted to scratch his own drawing of an otter up there?
