We had quite the adventure on our 11 o‘clock boat ride today. The weather was nice a little cold but as every one was wearing our warm overalls, we were warm and cozy. The sea condition was great and there for sailing out the fjord was smooth and nice. We did not have to sail far to find cetaceans. South of Hjalteyri we encountered two humpback whales who came up just in front of the boat showing us their beautiful knobby heads and fluke as they came up and went down for a dive. We know this individuals quite well  and named them Pepper and Giljagaur. We had a nice time with them and they were active coming up regularly. Amazing day again here in Eyjafjörður today.
