I think you agree with me when I say whales are among the most spectacular creatures on Earth. They are both strong and graceful. Seeing them in their natural habitat is such a rare occasion and privilege. The people in the video below can sure confirm it. They were on a boat in in San Ignacio, Belize, when a mother gray whale came close to them. The whale even lifted her calf out of the water giving those in the boat a chance to touch her and truly connect with her. This is amazing!
