This was the devastating sight that we woke to this morning. Coming through the shallowest part of the Great Sandy Straights yesterday, and trying not to beach ourselves on Sheridan Flats, we passed close to two humpback whales, struggling to come unstuck on the highest tide. They were being monitored by Parks and Wildlife, and several times during the night I thought of them, and hoped they'd make it off the sandbar and into deeper water. The pair were still visible six nautical miles off, giant landmarks that shouldn't be there.
