January 11th: Washed up Whale

whale 8

Although it is never a happy moment to see a dead animal, I have to acknowledge how privileged I am to have seen this in person.

Every Saturday morning, I wake up early and run with my group by the ocean.  During these early morning runs, I have been lucky enough to observe all kinds of beautiful scenery and animals such as red foxes, raccoons, cardinals, pelicans, gulls, you name it.  But this whale is a first.

The whale did not die because he was beached.  His cause of death is unknown but she was already dead when he got washed up. Below you’ll find more info.
