The sun warmed my shoulders, as I peered across the sea.
From far away, I heard sounds that I had never heard before.
These sounds were gentle to my ears. The sound was coming closer and closer.
I climbed to the highest cliff, that I could find. I listened, and then I searched.
My eyes scanned the horizon. I looked to your side of the world, far, far away.
I looked as far, as I could see. I looked to the North, the South, the East and the West.
The mysterious sound, was coming closer and closer.
Suddenly and magestically, a sea creature leaped out of the ocean.
It splashed,,,,, and then,,,, I was all wet!
I shivered, and shook my head. I rubbed the droplets from my eyes.
This beautiful, mysterious, creature that I had never seen before, was right before my eyes.
It swam in circles, and then would plunge down, down , down, into the dark sea.
I did not understand what this sea creature could be.
From deep in the sea, I could hear the sounds.
The sounds,,,, were like a lyllabye.
The ocean waves snuggled like a fluffy blanket, and then the sun disappeared.
I sat and watched the sun sink into the sea. I listened to the ocean roar.
And then it was at that moment,,, when I noticed a giant bubble drifting towards me.
Like magic in a fairy tale, I heard the words..... "Close your eyes and count to 3 Tweedles, count to 3".
I closed my eyes and counted to 3.
Then, like a dream come true, I was inside the giant bubble with Puff, my sea horse friend.
Puff told me about how he and Star, had been helping lead all the sea creatures to clean water and safety. "The ocean is healing itself," Puff said. "Your friends have helped the oceans so much."
"But now I must ask for more help, Tweedles."
This creature that you saw today, is my friend,, she is a whale.
She has a family called a pod.
This is a mama whale, and she has a baby in her tummy.
I will lead them to safety in the mighty oceans. The baby whale will be born soon.
But, I need you -to tell all your friends, to help me.
Please help me to find a safe place for this family of whales to live, and for all the other whales in the oceans. We must keep them safe from the dangers in the world.
The sounds that you heard today, were the songs of the whales.
The whales sing songs, just like you and me. This is their planet too,,,, please help.
Nitey nite my friends,
