There Was This Whale(s) (#740)

Volunteering at Cape Foulweather gave me an experience of a lifetime, especially on the last day I worked there.

Thru the month of April, the world passed through my door.  Whale watchers, browsers, gift buyers; giving me a glimpse into their precious lives and sharing their heartfelt stories.

People from Chili, Alaska, Germany, British Columbia, Florida….to name a few.  One couple recently moved to the Oregon Coast from Colorado.  They said they woke each day enthralled by their surroundings.  That is as it should be.

Another couple met on the internet several years ago; from opposite ends of the world.  Over the years they fell in love and decided to travel thousands of miles to meet and have been together ever since.  Ah, the mysteries of love.

Okay, so every day I looked out over the ocean for the whales.  Maybe a spout here or there.  Then I started to visualize whales everywhere; jumping, frolicing, flipping.  Still….no whales.  But I kept them in my mind’s eye.

Last day, beautiful, calm, sunny.  And…..the universe delivered.  It was “all whales on deck”

Popping up their heads to look around, flipping their tales high in the air; there were even two whales together rolling around on the surface.

A treat for all the visitors that day; a treasured memory for me.  And solid proof that first, there is a dream, a dream, a dream……
