It’s a pretty sure bet if you see cars stacked up on the side of a coastal highway, there could be a whale sighting.
If you should choose to see what all the commotion’s about and discover a baby blue whale has washed ashore, you should probably get out of your car to further investigate. At that moment, you will discover a smell way beyond the worst smell you’ve ever smelled before. Despite that you will likely end up trudging through muck and water and every kind of bird waste to smell it even better. Perhaps you will succumb to the temptation to touch the carcass just because it’s so unreal. And of course pretend you’re best friends with it for picture’s sake.
Without a doubt, you’ll be awed that THAT creature lives on the same earth as you.
