I hear you - it's probably a good thing the whales were smarter than the boaters. :)

Rev. Paul,

Now that was just totally amazing. I would love to have been on that boat taking pictures and video. Whales are just wonderful mammals. Another great reason to leave up there in God's country :-)

Ed - good one! Dory would be so proud of ... wait, what was I saying?

Vicki - it will definitely produce a split-second (or longer) of "Whoa!"

Chickenmom - they are quite impressive, especially when that close.

threecollie - agreed.

Sandy - we see them just about every year. God's creation is SO amazing!
