Photographer's Note

These waters claim the highest sighting sucess rate for dolphins in the world, above 99 pct.
First decade of September, with water around 25°C, the ideal time for swimming with the dolphins.
As far as the theme "Top ten Portugal beaches", two of them (two out of three which are not located in continental Europe) are somewhere along the visible shoreline.

One of them in the islet, the only place in the northern hemisphere where temperature at sea level did not leave the 10°C to 30°C range in this millenium.
These values are deducted from values recorded by a station 25 meters above sea level right on the cliffs on the background: lowest of 8.8°C in the night of 23 February 2003 and highest of 30.5°C, although in average there were 15 days above 29° each year.

In the southern hemisphere two more places: shores of Norfolk Island and Lord Howe Island.

----- November:
This side of the mountains, it is a miracle that it is possible to swim with the dolphins in November, with water still above 20°C.
On the other side of the mountains, it is a miracle that these November sunsets have survived until these days.
