2-26-08: More!

We took an early boat ride. More whales. They came in close. We petted their surprisingly soft noses. We watched other people smile at the presence. I’m emotionally jarred by the contact with these marvelous animals. They bridge a gap with humans that the humans hardly seem worthy of. It is interesting that the mothers allow their young to check people out. What other wild animal takes that chance? And why only here in the lagoons and not outside in the ocean?

When we came back to camp I was tired. Tomorrow I will go back to Mulege and see what sort of photos I got. I don’t understand this experience and it will take time to even accept it. Beyond the beyond.
