A 16-18 ft whale in London!


I just read online a story about a 16-18ft whale in the River Thames in London. They say this is the first time ever. Check it out: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/england/london/4631396.stm

Hi James,
I heard there was a whale sighting in Dusseldorf too.
Aparently it was walking the streets and speaking English to everyone.
At least its a whale with a porpoise.

I've been watching the footage on CNN. Hope it turns around soon and heads out to sea, else it will end up getting stranded and dying :(

Bad news - the whale died as it made it out to sea. Too bad...

James - found a great link today for Expats in Germany. Maybe you are interested...

anyone around to remember Humphrey the humpbacked whale that swam into the San Francisco Bay and up the sacramento river? he went way way up, finally turned around and made it all the way back. Happy ending. He even came back to visit once or twice.

Megan: I remember the whale in San Francisco. I didn't live there at that time, but I remember seeing it on the news. I remember the whale swimming in the Bay so close to 101 near Candlestick Park and the traffic was backed up from the City to the airport.....

Expat traveler: I read that the whale died...Sad. Thanks for that link to the German Expat site. I have visited it before and it is informative...THANKS!

Whales have swum up the Thames before, but this only seems to happen every couple of Hundred years or so.

Apparently whenever this event occurs something bad happens in England!

Keep watching the news! :)
