Maui: When A Baby Whale Smiles At You Watch My Video
I’m still in awe and wonderment of this sweet creature who came to me this morning while I was sitting on my paddleboard way out in the channel between Molokini Crater and Makena. I was very mindful to keep a respectful distance. Also not a great idea to jump in the water with these large animals.
I know it was a special moment as the mother was very calm and I tried to sincerely emanate love and care to this pair. There was another whale that may have been their protective escort. I had complete respect as I know this is a fragile moment.
I came up with this little happy tune to go with it and tears kept dripping on the strings, so it took a few takes to get it.
Please use ocean and reef safe sunscreen. I prefer to use RAW Elements USA. Great for your skin and does not harm sea life.
