It’s easy to forget that Earth’s surface is predominantly covered by water, and that oceans are full of diverse seascapes and ecosystems which rival anything we see on land.

This morning’s conditions were perfect – light winds, small swell and a big high tide, with good visibility and warm water. Here’s a few happy snaps and a video clip from some recent outings (mostly today):
