Way cool!

I can't swim, so one of my fantasies is falling overboard somewhere at sea and being rescued by a wild whale.

In case anybody missed it, here's a fascinating article from a recent issue of the NY Times Sunday Magazine about amazing whale behavior in general, and regarding humans in the Baja California area in particular:

http://www.nytimes.com/2009/07/12/magazine/12whales-t.html?_r=1&pagewanted=all

It's a long article, but worth the read. Here's the story that ends the article, about a rescue team attempting to free a female humpback whale entangled in fishing gear:

"For an hour they cut at the lines and rope with curved knives, all the while trying to steer clear of a tail they knew could kill them with one swipe. When the whale was finally freed, the divers said, she swam around them for a time in what appeared to be joyous circles. She then came back and visited with each one of them, nudging them all gently, as if in thanks. The divers said it was the most beautiful experience they ever had. As for the diver who cut free the rope that was entangled in the whale’s mouth, her huge eye was following him the entire time, and he said that he will never be the same."
