What a fascinating shard of history, Lisl!
Lisl: It is, Ray - I wonder what happened to the rest
That is amazing. It looks huge.
Lisl: It is not as large as it looks, Michael

et une belle photo
Lisl: Many thanks, tilk
Well that's really something - now you're doing the natural history lesson! smile
Lisl: Not something you come across that often, Elizabeth, and especially not round our shores

I suppose someone nicked the rest of it Lisl.
Lisl: I expect there were souvenir hunters, Chad
Before reading your explanatory text, we hesitate between a stone and rests of a dead tree and it is not neither of them. But it is very beautiful and photographed well
Lisl: Thank you, Marie - I always visit the whale remain when I am in the area

aww, that's almost too sad
Lisl: It is quite an event, and a very sad one indeed, when a whale gets washed up on our shore
It is common to find whale bones in Atlantic coastal areas of Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, the Magdelene Islands, and Such. Quite often rib bones can be seen. I know of one on the island here and there but there are probably many. Aren't they amazing!
Lisl: They are amazing, and it is a pity that so little is left of this one
It's not difficult to imagine how large these creatures are when one sees just this one single bone.
Lisl: I saw a stuffed whale on tour once in Southsea - I was a child at the time and it took ages to walk along its length
nature reclaims everything eventually Lisl...good find....petersmile
Lisl: Yes - just imagine how huge this once was
It could be a work of art...well it is really
Lisl: Yes - it was originally very well-designed, Bill
impressionnant cet os!! amitiés
Lisl: Not something you see often!
