My beach! Mine!

There's a whale stranded on my beach!  And the goddamn news photos make it look like a mint day (pouring here, typical)
Its a juvenile male pygmy sperm, and apparently all the preschools etc are going down for a look - it makes me all wibbly inside to know that everyone ran down to help ferry water buckets from the ocean.  I would!  Dad was down before work this morning, but didn't take a pic 'cause so many people were hassling around it.  Hassling in a good way.

He doesn't look that heavy, surely they can re-float him soon.

UPDATE:  Mum tells me he has been re-floated amongst big fuss with the local Maori standing guard.  Love it.
