Another fabulous day spent outside!
We embarked on a boat today to go bird watching. You want birds? OMG!!! You've never seen anything like this I'm sure! 500 000 puffins at the same spot!!! Incredible! Thing is, there aren't only puffins here! There are razorbills, murres and various types of gulls - even some with their babies. It's noisy, smelly and wonderful! Sophie was in heaven with all those birds around! We also got to see minke whales (they are kind of boring as they don't do much - no spout, no fluke) and a beautiful humpback (they are the "fun" ones - they come right up to your boat, show off their flukes and can even be seen breeching).
On the first tour, I was talking to one of the crew members mentioning how I would've loved to have seen a whale... so, he offered to give us a second tour for free! Wow! What a nice man! Of course we didn't refuse and on the second time out is when we saw the gigantic humpback - right beside the boat!
