lost child




This morning there was a little lost baby whale in Refuge Bay in Pittwater.

It was only about one month old, and separated from its mother.
It was trying to suckle from the hull of a yacht before it was shepherded back out to sea, back to the deep.

It is calling for her now. I hope she hears.

I hope. It's VERY little.

Poor little guy.....I hope his mama hears him. Imagine losing your mom in such immense wateriness! I hope, hope, hope.

I've no doubt God looks after lost baby whales at sea.

By the way, Fifi, how are your papers coming (the one you referenced in the previous entry)?

I've been thinking about this little baby too.
And amazing that how far we've come as humans, yet I read there was nothing humans could do for the baby...

I heard about him on the news today--Fifi's baby whale---what's the latest?

It's distressing isn't it.

yes, just awfulness to have to stand by and watch it perish.
