I was driving to Seattle early this morning when I heard on the radio about a dead whale that had washed up on the beach at Seahurst Park. A Fin Whale. The second largest living creature on the planet. Amazing. I was awe-struck with the magnificence of it. I was saddened that it lost it’s life from being struck by a sea going vessel. I was fascinated discovering all the detail. It was every bit a celebration of wonder.
The Cascadia Research Collective was one of the organizations that were present to examine it. Here is their preliminary report.
