SL was wiggling at the knees as we exited the whale watching tour. Approximately 1/5 of the world's Atlantic Right Whale population were off the coast of Massachusetts. Whales are slow and gentle. Calming to watch.
There seems to be a lot of wonder at the whale's ability to communicate over a distance of miles, but I think if I was that big too it wouldn't be that wondrous to scream at a friend a mile away. A mile is probably like a block at that scale. Ants are probably impressed at our ability to scream out the window at our partners, "Hey! Bring home some milk!"
