Bella Cola!

IMG_9352 IMG_9395IMG_9596Shelley: Dramamine?

John: No thanks. I’m not worried about getting sea sick, I’m worried about being swallowed by a whale.

Shelley: Ah ha! That’s why they gave us these wrist bands, so they can identify our remains when they open up Moby Dick.

John: Great. Thanks for saying that. Exactly what I want to hear while we’re in the birthing waters of the grey whales, which, by the way, are over three times the size of this boat.

Shelley: I have something to tell you that will help you relax.

John: What?

Shelley: After listening to “Ted Talks” I’ve decided that my New Year’s resolution is,

“To be even more compassionate, more giving, to look out for others before I look out for myself.”

John: Does that mean you’ll risk your life to save me from being eaten by a whale?

Shelley: Absolutely.

John: I do feel better. Come here.

John and Shelley: Mwahhhhhh!!

Boatman: Bella cola!

Shelley: But not before I take the perfect picture.

Wait for it!

    • Back at you. We are thinking about taking another trip on our return. Apparently they will come up to the boat with their babies. Tonight I’ll be starting your book. YAY!
