RIP The Whale

4th January 2012

The Whale was finally removed from Old Hunstanton beach earlier today, as KLFM was the 1st to report.Did you get the chance to go and see it?

 

I completely understand why it was such an attraction after all its not every day you get to stand so close to such an amazing creature of the deep. What I struggled to understand however is why some complete idiots took time to take away any dignity the poor whale had left by stealing his teeth, chain-sawing his jaw, laying on him, walking all over him and much more.

 

That is completely unforgivable and not fun in any shape of form especially as some of this was filmed and placed on You Tube.

 

My little girl is obsessed with sharks and the like at the moment and had wanted to see it over Christmas so yesterday the kids and my wife took a trip to a very busy beach to catch a glimpse of the wonderful beast.

 

On arrival my wife was pleased to realise there was no smell thanks to the wind direction, my son was very upset as it was so windy, the sand was blowing in his eyes and as he put it “He was nearly walking in the air”.

 

Holly loved it though and told me tales of how big, fat and tall the whale was, “as big as from that wall Dad to that wall over there and this tall!” Jo my wife was most unimpressed however, her boots were ruined, she got covered in sand, her hair resembled being dragged through a bush backwards and they all got very wet as the bright afternoon suddenly turned into another mini storm of wind and rain.

 

RIP The Whale
