Re: Dead Whale?
When I was in grad-school a pretty good-sized bull blue whale washed up on the beach a few miles from campus. I'll never forget looking down on it from the cliffs, maybe 80 feet above it and a couple of hundred yards up the beach, contemplating with my friends how best to hike down there, when suddenly the wind shifted and all we could think about was putting as much distance between ourselves and that carcass as fast as possible. I've seen/smelled several dead whales since, but nothing comes anywhere close to the stench of that one.
Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.
