They only do that because they can.

That is where you really see them at their best. And one time we got to see two blue whales. They are so rare now and on the endangered species list. How sad.

I used to go up to Kodiak Island when I lived in Tacoma, WA. I had a couple of Indian friends there. I would take the ferry from Seattle at the beginning of the summer and again in the fall at the salmon run. When we got into the Alaskan waters on the Aleutian Islands, you began to see the whales in numbers coming up from Hawaii. How can anything that big just toss itself into the air like a toy?

Th owner was on the seat with the reins trying to calm Lady down. His wife was on the ground afraid to go near her. My MIL went over jumped up, grabbed her rein right near the double bit, pull her head down and gave Lady a sucker punch you wouldn't believe. Lady (the horse) calmed right down. "Hey Lady, if I fire my wife, would you work for me?" My MIL turned the job offer down. She wasn't much taller than me and didn't weigh 100 pounds. But she has hitched up many teams as a young girl in the hills of Kentucky. It must have been that McCoy blood in her veins.

If I believed in reincarnation I'd love to come back as a giant Manta Ray. They are gorgeous majestic creatures.
