|Whale's Flipper Protruding|
There was a whale all right. One whale was frolicking about ten yards off the beach, occasionally raising a barnacle-encrusted flipper, exposing its back, spraying water from its spout. It was the first time I had seen a whale. I was surprised that a whale could come so close to the beach; it was probably of a smaller species, possible a humpback.
