30. A Hug of the Ages
The female was swimming a mere four feet below her then quickly spun around to expose her belly to Nan. Suddenly, it spread her fins upward as if to give Nan a massive hug! Coincidentally, this happened right on her birthday, and Nan received a gift that she will treasure forever. In a span of only five days, Nan had been saved and hugged. Perhaps they were expressing their gratitude for her establishing a sanctuary where they can swim freely and without harm from humans. Whatever the case, you gotta admit that her unique story is heartwarming.
