This is a true story!

Three of us (the tres amigos) who are training for the Long Beach Triathlon arrived at our regular swim site. We came upon a crowd of people lining the beaches, docks and bridge.  We had heard helicopters overhead earlier in the day, but assumed it was due to the solar eclipse – another excitement of the day.   There were tons of people watching a young juvenile whale that was separated from its pod and swimming in shallow waterways where it should not be swimming.  The whale was very close to shore, thus the lifeguards had everyone out of the water for their safety as well as the safety of the whale.Screen Shot 2017-08-22 at 7.57.36 PM

The Tres Amigos said – well, now that’s a great excuse to NOT swim.  …OK, plan B was to get up and swim at 7 am the next morning – which we did!!  Yeah for us.

See a brief clip of the whale below.   Really, it is not a Whales Tale… it was an actual Whale Tail.
