Next stop for the Whale: Wissahickon CreekYeah, the damn Whale, Helis, is back. Except now, instead of the Delaware, that nice big, salty river, he is in the Schuylkill. Maybe he just loves Philly too much?
From the Inquirer:
The sightings near the Girard Point Bridge come nine days after Helis was last spotted in the Delaware Bay, swimming toward the ocean.Maybe it is just a sign that Philly rivers are getting pretty clean? Maybe it is a sign that Helis was caught up in the Philly love? Maybe that slogan about the city loving him back really made him wistful?
Experts believe Helis, originally from Canada's St. Lawrence River, took up residence on the Delaware earlier this month to feed on shad making their spring spawning run upriver.
But if I am rowing, and all of a sudden my boat gets flipped by a Beluga, I will be mighty pissed.
