Whales and whirlpools

whalesandwhirlD: Look, the water‘s going out of the basin like a swirl pool! …What’s a swirl pool?

Me: A WHIRL pool is when the water goes round and round and down – just like that.

D: Oh – I thought it was when a boat has water under it that goes round and SUCKS it down!

Me: Well yes – whirlpools can be in the sea too, but not very often and hardly ever with boats right on top.

D: If there WAS a boat on top, it would get sucked under and a big whale would come along and eat it. That would be scary wouldn’t it?

Me: I guess so, but I don’t think that happens very often at all.
