Every winter gray whales come to this warm water lagoon in Mexico to raise their calf. Once we are in the lagoon, as soon as the boatman stops the engine this friendly mom and calf approached us. They spent quite some time to get a friendly pat from everyone in the boat. If you are lucky they will also look at your eyes and that, I promise, will change you forever.
