As you dip your toes into the warm Pacific waters that embrace our coast, take a moment to let your gaze drift across the deepest blue, towards the horizon. Do you see that tell-tale spray, plumes of salty mist riding the wind? Signs a gentle giant passes by, lulled by those same temperate tides that you, too, enjoy. With a sudden breach he introduces himself, inviting you to play. Will you take the plunge? Meet Edward. He has a secret to tell…
The watery world of the magnificent humpback was once fraught with danger. Many of his family travelled north, as he does now, following the paths of their ancestors, yet did not return. The tides became red and the might of these behemoths waned.
The times change though, much as they always have, but now there is renewal drifting the great currents. Mankind, who once caused the humpback to disappear, ever fickle as the winds, has befriended this great ocean wanderer. Edward’s secret is hope. His future is a hidden garden in which he may, soon, be able to play, and, if the tides will it, share.
