THE PARTY OF FOUR

As every day so far in November, we left the harbor on our beautiful oak boat Sylvía just shortly after sunrise today in the late morning. The sunlight was throwing beautiful colours onto the town and mountains as we left the pier. The sea was shining due to a thin layer of ice covering the water in the harbour. Once out in the bay, the winterly deep blue of the ocean surrounded us as the boat sailed its way towards the area where we had left a humpback whale behind yesterday afternoon. Full of hope, we approached the place spying for the blow of the whale. It wouldn't take long until we noticed its first breath. A cloud of steam arose from the surface and we changed our course towards it.


As we got closer and closer, the whale surfaced for a final breath before lifting its huge and beautiful fluke out of the water, then it disappeared in the depths for a dive. Only seconds later something else arose our interest: today the humpback whale wasn't all alone, instead three more individuals were surfacing nearby, swimming side by side in a group. Filled with wonder, we followed the whales as they took one breath after another. After a few minutes of calmly moving along the surface, all three of them lifted their flukes simultaneously and went to join the previous individual on its dive.
