Less then a year later, another humpback whale (all 15 metres of it) has been washed up to shore but this time onto a beach a few hundred yards down the road from Hillarys in a placed called Sorrento. Sorrento just so happens to be the place we stayed when we did our original rekkie to Perth back in early 2006.
Whilst en-route to its final resting spot on Sorrento beach, two sharks were seen this time circling the whale’s carcass when the whale was first spotted offshore at Hillarys.
I know these things have to end up somewhere but I’m unsure what the draw is to our local beaches. Thankfully it’s not one of the whales we saw a few weeks back.
