Whale Love

Today's whale watching expedition with Sanctuary Cruises in Moss Landing changed has changed my perception of whales - their beauty, majesty, gracefulness, and playful power power. For an hour this humpback flirted with us and our boat, rising and diving around us, and repeatedly sending up wet kisses that smothered us in sprays of stinky whale breath. We were as enthralled with her as she was with us as we laughed, oohed and awwwed with each of her dances. We became so comfortable with this whale's movement that we could actually predict when she would emerge and blow us another kiss.
