Favorites : Whales

Friday, April 20, 2012

It was only a matter of time before I posted some Orcas. And I couldn't wait any longer. Orcas / Killer Whales are my favorite. I've always loved them. I was 4 when I went to Sea World for the first time (sadly, that was the last time I've been there). From that moment on, all I wanted was to be a whale trainer.

And then 3 years later, Free Willy is released. How could I not fall in love with whales...and Keiko. Keiko was the whale that played Willy in the movie. So many years went by and he was constantly in the public eye - people were fighting for his freedom. I followed his story all my life. When he passed away in 2003, I wasdevastated- I felt like I had lost a friend.

I didn't follow my dream of being a whale trainer - which I'm still torn about. Every time I see an orca on tv, I feel like I should be there. But at the same time, I know how truly unnatural it is for them to be in these small tanks just for human amusement.

Don't they just make you smile!? I've been planning to saving up to go whale watching one year for my birthday. Won't happen this year. Maybe next year?
