At first there were onle the rays of light coming trough the sedimented waters of the subarctic Hudson Bay. I had seen the whales from the surface but underwater they were nowwhere to be seen.
I saw pods of white shadows moving in the depth and suddenly I could hear a sound similar to birds chirping in spring time. Everything seemed to be like a beautiful dream and I smiled as well as I could with my face submerged in the frigid waters. But then out of the murky shadows below came these angels of the Arctic. Large pods of beluga whales slowly drifted by. This was truly a dream come trough and all I felt was pure happiness.
