Today we picked up Marije’s parents from the airport, they’re here for a 3 week visit in which we’ll see a lot of the island. They had a good trip across the Atlantic, although it was a bit bumpy at times. Within 2 hours after arriving they had their first wildlife encounter just outside Marije’s office at the OSC:

As you can see the whales are coming in closer every day, we saw 3 Fin Whales and 2 Minke’s today, some of which came within 20 metres of the cliffs.
