As you know, due to my recent run-ins with tiger sharks, I have only been timidly swimming close to shore.

So imagine my surprise when three Humpback Whales swam up to me in shallow water this morning. As soon as I saw them coming, I stopped swimming and floated in place.

The mother whale was very curious, and I think she wanted to play. But how does one play with a giant? She swam up to me three times, each time closer than the previous pass, which made me very nervous. Every time she approached me, I quietly backed away until she finally seemed to get the message.

It was a thrilling experience - and scarey too.
