Beached Whale ... and it's not me in a wet suit...
Katie and I took a run down to Port Beach today,
because we were told there was a ...
It was breezy, very cool and there were heavy showers soaking us.
But when there are beached whales in the vicinity, bloggers head off with camera in hand.
And here's the Minke whale that was washed up on the shore earlier today.
That is some size o' tongue...
I spoke with two Marine somethings....
who reckoned the whale died a day or two ago.
I also spoke with a local fisherman,
who reckoned it had been dead for weeks.
Going by the smell ...
I'd be more inclined to go with the 'weeks' theory.
Although, of course, I'm no expert.
Except on smells, and that smell is still in my nostrils.
And I need a coffee and cake to get rid of it.
