Check out this video of a surfer paddling between Los Angeles and Catalina Island–some twenty plus miles of open water–with a whale at her side. I have experienced whales and dolphins playing along the side of our sailboat. They love it! They are very inquisitive and loyal. When they leave you can almost feel them saying, “It was nice to meet you. I really had a good time. So long!” The surfer in the video is raising awareness for her friends and family. Support her cause!
