Things to bear in mind (Pardon the pun!)
As I shunted my babies and urged them to hurry up, I could see the fear in their eyes. Fear clung to their fur. Fear hung in the stagnant air. Even though I appeared calm and collected fear enveloped me. I was petrified they wouldn't be able to swim the long distance to land, which was so far way. As we arrived at the edge of the ice and prepared ourselves for the plunge into the ice cold water, I looked at them one last time to take in their beauty. I couldn't begin to imagine life without them. I was torn between staying where we were and moving on to find food. It was safe but we were becoming weak and hungry. We couldn't stay much longer. I carried Beu on my back because he was the weakest and definitely wouldn't make it.
The clear water glistened in the sun, which pierced the surface lighting up the depths of the sea. Shadows loomed below and whales began their ascent, launching into the air to catch their breath, as if to say, its ok you can do this.
