“The whales are back in the bay!”
I knew it before I heard the answer to my question. People straggling off the whale watching boat had that sloppy smile and dreamy-eyed look of those who’ve witness the awesome mysteries of nature!
“Two young ones – over there!” she said, and I felt it too – that silly smile sliding unbidden onto my face.
Our boat harbour is the last man-made launching point before the Antarctic – 6 000 kilometers away. And to think these gentle giants, ‘dinosaurs of the deep’, travel all that way to birth in our bay! It truly is a celebration.
