Have You Seen This? Close encounters of the whale kind

Posted August 8

THE OCEAN — I'd like to say I have a great respect for the ocean, but that's a lie. The truth of the matter is that it scares the Dickens out of me. It's so big and you have no idea what's lurking underneath.

Don't get me wrong, I still love going to the beach and playing in the water, but there's always this little voice in the back of my head saying, "Oh, you're super going to die today."

I think I'm over that fear and then I see this. I know most of you will watch this video and think, "This is amazing. I want to go do that." I respect that, I really do. But my pessimistic little voice would be saying, "Sure. That looked cool, but where is that thing now? You know it's the size of a bus, right? Would you be all smiles if a bus came that close to eating you?"

My little voice isn't much on logic.

Truth is that this video is amazing. These whale watchers in Quebec got their money's worth and then some.

Check out the video and I challenge you to not gasp the first time.
