sweetocean_ Today I went with my son to observe the humpback whales... I didn't take the camera with me as I wanted to enjoy the moment 100% with him telling stories about mammals, migration and survival... It was the best whale encounter I've had in 10 years and for many experienced in the boat was the same.
Two whales stayed with us for 2 hours surrounding the boat checking us straight into our eyes... we could almost touch them.... It was a surreal experience.... Thank you @australia and uncle @rafitty for this Bday gift 🐋 #iphoneonly

sweetocean_ 1st of September ~ it is said that it's a good day for new beginnings, to start fresh, to embrace life... 🏻
I want to celebrate it with a photo of a wild dolphin in Galápagos Islands, probably the best place to enjoy marine life diversity up, close and personal. This guy was a resident in the northern islands and the story says it landed once on top of one of the Agressor's fleet deck! The crew looked after "him" and he went back to the ocean very quick... Since then... He always welcomes divers and swims around them... He swam below me for more than 5 minutes just chilling and checking ... It was such a special experience and I hope everyone, at least once can experience the spiritual connection of swimming with wild dolphins.... Say no to marine life in captivity and do not feel scared of speaking and expressing your thoughts openly. That only, changes the world.
The annual/brutal/insane dolphin hunt starts today in Taiji, Japan. Google The Cove if you don't know about it. 🏻

Thank you for the inspiration and the simple way of putting everything in perspective for everyone capable to love and care.

sweetocean_ A hidden Paradise not too far away from the coastline! Less than an hour driving, a few k's trek downhill and one is immersed in a tropical, humid greenland of turquoise fresh waters, big rocks formations, creeks, lush and thick vegetation and everything else in between.
It is also a protected area and very well kept. It's normally open to the public so if you ever go please remember to take any rubbish with you to keep this paradise as intact as it should be.

sweetocean_ Up, close and personal with this incredible mammals on board of @spiritofgoldcoast vessel! It was a few weeks ago; mums and calves were cruising together and staying under for long periods of time; very quiet, very peaceful, not coming too close to the boats as the little ones were only a week or 2 from being born. It'll be interesting to see what they are up to now with their babies growing and getting strong! I bet they are jumping around and much more confident! Can't wait to go and observe them again very soon!
Have a whale of a weekend everyone!! 🐋

We are still in that stage where the "I love you's" are said 15 times a day as well as the "I want to marry you mummy, you are the best" 🏻

sweetocean_ Today, an explosion of music, powerful thoughts, open hearts, and strong visions!
It's always sublime to see @xavierruddofficial live, close and personal (front row this time with the best people around to enjoy it and I didn't know any of them till tonight ); that's how I like it anyway; unpredictable and constantly amazing.
Music integrates, blends us all... Shouldn't everything else be the same? Life can be incredibly simple that is almost unnecessary to explain much.
One thing I would probably say is..go and live, go and experience what's outside your life's dimensions; always-always be kind to others and listen to their stories. Avoid judging, be open, be respectful, be integral and accept that we are all different, unique and therefore, valuable.

sweetocean_ From the East Coast of Australia to the West Coast of Ecuador, @surfmud landed in Playas, an amazing coastal town full of beach breaks and rights. This is @pycaza, representing @rivierapaddlesecuador and also in charge of a new great project called @miplayalimpia (mycleanbeach) to keep her favourite place clean for the community and future generations.
Paula, hope you are loving and sharing your #surfmud, the best zinc on earth and full of good stuff for your skin! 😎 Thanks @droneando for the footage and @afernandez73 for sending it; will have more Surfmud for you guys soon! 🏼

sweetocean_ I recently went for a little trek with my dear friend @pennyweb around Killarney Glen. It was overcast and wet, we even had a little shower so walking around the edge was pretty slippery and we had to be extra special. It is such a nice area and we promised to go back for further exploration down the creeks and in search of falls and little trails around.... Thank you my friend for the beautiful day! 2w
