Respect your elders: Watching whales in Harvey Bay and The Pacific Whale Foundation
|De 7 de agosto de 2011|
Here, in this country where it is still possible to see young people, and not so youngs, moving from one spot to another with the “no-worries” sense of life, travelling and looking for chances, and taking them too, it would not be so odd to find out that this country is one of the fewest places in the world where you can touch a humpback whale without no fear
And by the by , just when you are watching a couple of these enormous whales coming straight on your boat, it is just the reminder momentJ when you remember the zilla, the great Mobby Dick and Captain Akad walking along the deck restlessly day and night, waiting for revenge. (Read Herman Melville novel or just watch the Gregory Peck´s film)
But the moment passes by when the amazing pair of giant friends become the terror in a suddenly and unforgettable admiration.
Handsome swimmers, overgrown travelers, playful wises, the humpbacked whales begin a game with the boat and its boatlanders, with the crew and the crowd , taking a position beside them, and properly being put out by these intrepid gamblers.
These gossip ancestors seem to be enjoying with us like, for sure, not any animal in our damaged world because of our disturbing steps, tipping our world upside down by a moment.
Two whales? A couple more? . No, not at all. A lot of them, here in Harvey Bay, swimming in pairs, in trios, after breeding their calves in the north.
Harvey Bay is one of the world finest whale-watch locations .
These honey mates begin their migration from their breeding winter areas, while growing up, to their summer feeding ones, from July till November.
