Whales sighted in Southend...


Two Northern Bottlenose whales were spotted in Southend water's last night, far from their home in the depths of the Atlantic. Then one whale was spotted near the London eye, and swam up the Thames towards Chelsea.
Rene reports informed me that there was still a whale in Southend today, and I've been looking out with my binoculars across the water all day, but haven't seen anything, although big waves fooled me at times.
I'm still writing the new song, and you can expect the whale to feature now, as well as Punk boy.
Hope everyone's doing good, thanks for all the comments here, take care and GMaS.

Dear Mikey

Whales everywhere all over this blog!

I was just commenting on Rachel's.

I'm still home sick, so I've been commenting all over the place. My voice just gets louder the longer I'm home trying to rest...

Thank you for going into more detail on the whale sightings. We have Orca (killer whales) off our west coast. Beautiful.

We also have spawning Kokanee salmon every autumn in the creek in our front yard.

"Punk Boy and the Whale..."
Sounds like it could become a classic tale.

Let me know if you see one yourself through your binocs.

Love it!

Mikey, looks like you have a few more songs on IAC. One thing you may want to consider is making up some cool CD lables, the plain artwork on the CD is ok, but that cool looking photo of you near the sea would be awesome with the names of the songs along side. Let me know if you need help in that regard. A slight typo on your name on the existing one, no biggie, but the artwork is showing up next to all songs playing on IAC. I came up with a name for my EP.. "Pipedream", kind of tongue in cheek.

Have a great weekend.

Hi Mikey,
I hope the whales are going to be alright. I saw the one that went up the Thames on the news. It is sad. I sure hope they can steer him in the right direction.

More songs. Can't wait to hear them. Where do you get the inspiration? I and am glad I found you and your music.

Hope your weekend is a good one.

XXXOOO

One of the first things I thought of when I heard about the whale in the Thames was if you had seen it. I used to live just off the the St. Lawrence River, which connects Lake Ontario and the Atlantic, and once in a while a whale (or shark!) would make it as close as Montreal. Never saw one myself though ... just as well, as it was too far upstream.

Another beautiful picture - listening to IAC right now and looking at that picture and am very relaxed - good for a week of 60+ hours that isn't yet over! Even your simplest photos tend to be powerful.

Somehow I knew you would be out looking for the whale. Also that you would be inspired to write a song.

I've been listening to IAC constantly trying to give you and Rachel and Simon all equal time.

Hey Mikey! Can't wait to here some new songs. Sounds great! I heard a lot about the whale all the way here in Missouri. Sad story I think, interesting too.
have a great weekend

I saw the papers on my way back from work yesterday and couldn't believe my eyes. Poor soul. I hope they leave her alone. Instict will guide her back to the Atlantic...

I'm off to IAC now to listen to your songs. And then Rachel's. And then Simon's...
Hey people, I've got a LIFE!!! LOL! Only kidding, your music is the soundtrack of my life, makes it so beautiful :o)

So awful how they lifted the whale out of the water, killing her, then marveling at how "all that time spent out of the water was just too much stress." No...really?

:-P

Poor lost whales...

Hi again, Mikey - stunning pictures! I set the orange gold as my wallpaper, then promptly turned around and put this one up! :)
Still trying to catch up. I did see you guys on Towser, though. It was great! :)
