Rotting Tons

Whale washes up on the shores of Ventura. Scientists study it and determine it was decapitated by a big tanker. Dudes cut a huge hole in the whale. Drag it 10 miles offshore to sink. It doesn't. Slowly floats back towards land and ended up around Malibu. Rottin' dead whale flesh could be smelled up and down the northern Malibu coast. Lifeguards pull the rotting 70 ton whale out again and cross their fingers. Poor big thing deserves better than this.

Anyone think any sharks got wind of this?

Fun this morn. Consistently comin' in. Beautiful, beautiful morning. Damn sun comes out too late these days. But stayed local and didn't regret it. Gettin' back into the surf of things. Waves!

How's that new board coming along?

A baby humpback whale washed up here in Pacifica too. They don't know what killed it. It's sad though. A possible cause of death could be toxic algae disease. City officials were hoping the tide would carry it back out. Not such a great thought considering the heavy presence of great whites in the area.

Ever seen that video of them trying to remove a whale by blowing it up?
... I know, I know, I'm being insensitive... but it WAS funny.
