Whale Out of Water --- Day 7/310

Walk: PGCC Book Group (An American Marriage)
Distance: a few blocks, a few asanas

So Ciwt was walking on Crissy Field the other day when she spotted this: 

Whaaa?  Looked like a whale out of water and on Crissy Field field.   

So she walked closer:
and closer

Until she was so close she could see the huge ocean creature was made of PLASTIC! 😱 




















Then she was able to read a sign that told her that every nine minutes 300,000 pounds of plastic, the weight of a blue whale, makes its way into the ocean.  Turns out the whale out of water is also out of the Monterey Bay Aquarium; it is visiting Crissy Field to make people aware of our plastic footprint and is just one visual, educational part of the Aquarium's campaign to take on plastic pollution.  If you can't visit the whale at Crissy Field, you can read more here.
