Whale sushi on special at Noetzie the whole weekend! Free smell included! That’s a message for the seagulls. For us, it’s worse when a whale dies (as compared to other sea creatures and most animals on land – in our hearts, they’re like the elephants of the sea.).
This sad, majestic creature was offshore yesterday. This morning, it washed onto Noetzie Beach – R.I.P. Surrealistically, against the backdrop of a castle, the seagulls are feasting.
I remember what a mission it was for SANParks and Knysna Municipality when the last whale washed up at Buffalo Bay. This will be an even harder job. They may have to blow it up. I will inquire.
