      So interesting and a charming story..  

       

      The Whale

       

      This is one of my favorite e-mails.....if you've ever seen the whales interact with humans .....its amazing .we've had a momma humpback push her calf up to the inflatable boat we were on...as if to show off her baby.....

       

       

       

       

      The  Whale 


      A  female humpback whale had become entangled in a spider web of crab  traps
       and  lines.

      She was weighted down by hundreds of pounds of traps that  caused
       her to struggle to stay  afloat. 
       

       She also had hundreds of yards  of line rope wrapped around her body, her tail, her torso, a  
       
      line
       tugging in her  mouth.

      A fisherman spotted her just east of  the  Faralon   Islands  (outside  the  Golden Gate  ) and radioed for  help.

      Within a few hours, the rescue team arrived and determined  that she was so bad off, the only 
      way to save her was to dive in and  untangle her
       -- a very dangerous  proposition.  One slap of 
      the  tail could kill a rescuer.





      They worked for hours with curved knives and eventually  freed her. 

      When she was free, the divers say she  swam in what seemed like joyous circles. 
      She then came back to each and  every diver, one at a time, nudged them, and
       pushed gently, 
      thanking  them...



      Some said it was the most  incredibly beautiful experience of their  lives. 


      The guy who cut the  rope out of her mouth says her eye was following him the 
       
      whole  time, and he will never be the same



      May you,  and all those you love,
       be so  fortunate... 
      To be surrounded by people
       who will  help you get untangled from the 
       things that are  binding you.
      And, may you always know the joy
       of giving  and receiving gratitude. 


       

      I pass this on to you, my friend, in the same spirit. 

      Hugs


      Life is short, Break the rules, Forgive quickly, Kiss slowly, Love truly, 
      Laugh uncontrollably...
      Never regret anything that made you smile
