A lot of my friends are taking up the sport of paddle boarding! In fact my sister was just telling me about her girlfriends birthday where they paddled around Dana Point Harbor and then celebrated with champagne on the beach! Working the booty and bubbly I love it!
Ellen just tweeted this video today and I had to share because it is such a wonderful story! Jodie was paddle boarding from Catalina to the coast of California in an effort to raise money for Paddle With Purpose (supporting Breast Cancer Research) and somewhere between coasts she had a rare encounter with a Minke whale she affectionately named Larry. It’s no secret I love whales and I am oh so envious of her encounter!
This whale swam with her for over 2 hours! Larry is not your ordinary whale – make sure you watch to the end of the video to hear Jodie talk about why she thinks Larry crossed her path that day in the water, it’s a great message. Larry the Whale has an official blog as well.
