Post #36 of #49 – Over the next 24 hours I will be raising funds for the Union Gospel Mission during Blogathon 2009 by writing a blog post every 30 minutes. Please consider donating to my cause to keep my going until 6am PT July 26th.
That’s probably the most morbid title I’ve ever had on a blog post but it’s something that happened today in Vancouver. The Sapphire Princess pulled into port (which we can see from our position here at Workspace) with a (now) deceased fin whale stuck to its bow. John Biehler, who was visiting us at Blogathon, walked over to the cruise ship terminal to take some photos.
His images ended up getting picked up by the Globe and Mail. It’s a pretty sad tale but I am happy that our friend got some exposure for his images, despite the grim circumstances.
