Once in a while, you just need to be in the right spot at the right time. This happened to me in April of 2023. I was riding my bike on the island of Mallorca. It was a fine and really quiet morning. Suddenly my Garmin GPS started beeping and gave me a ‘Marine weather warning’. I wasn’t quite sure what to make of this and finished my ride as planned.
Two hours later I caught a glimpse of the ocean from the restaurant of my hotel and realised what Garmin had been trying to tell me all along: The ocean was in uproar. The usual blue/ green color was gone and replaced by a threatening grey. The waves were huge. Lucky for me, there was hardly any wind and raced back to my room to grab my DJI Mavic Mini 2.
Below is some footage from that morning. It was an amazing scene to witness from the safety of the shore.
