Yesterday Tarn, Tarn's Mum, Tarn's little sister, Isaac, Raewyn, Mrs Pritchard and Allanah went on a big long walk down to the end of Rabbit Island- Moturoa to see if it was true- that there was a dead whale on the beach.
So you know where it is Allanah put this Google Earth Map on the blog so you know where to look. Here is what Tarn and Isaac had to say about the whale.
It took at least an hour to walk from the car park down to where the whale was. My Dad had told me about it from an item in the newspaper and my Mum said if I get all my homeowrk done I could chose a friend to come with us. My friend is Isaac.
It was awesome seeing such a big thing washed up on Rabbit Island. It is not something you see every day.
I wasn't enjoying the smell of the dead whale. It smelt like tons of rotten fish. We could only just stand the smell.
Isaac is standing in front of the whales head. It is pretty impressive. We could see the whale's blow hole.
Ilza threw up twice with the smell of the dead whale.
On the way home we saw Allanah, Mrs Pritchard and Raewyn coming down to look at the whale as well.
Keegan went down to Rabbit Island this morning just as the DOC workers were about to bulldoze a hole to bury the whale.
