Thought to be extinct from the Atlantic, scientists think that the whale came from the Pacific through the NW Passage. First such sighting in over 200 years, pretty cool. https://www.cbsnews.com/boston/news/gray-whale-massachusetts-sighting/ https://www.forbes.com/sites/brianbushard/2024/03/05/rare-gray-whale-spotted-in-atlantic-first-in-over-200-years/

Go placidly amid the noise and waste, and remember what comfort there may be in owning a piece thereof.

Long absent as a population in the Atlantic. One did cross the Arctic a few years ago, ended up in the Mediterranean, as far east as Haifa. Apparently starved as I remember. Where one can stray two could. Could grays extend their range? Was there genetic exchange during previous Arctic Ocean Ice minima? The later seems easier than the first.

Keep Calm and Carry On? Heck No. Stay Excited and Get Outside!

They do like to wander. I recall years ago a whale ventured all the way up the Sacramento almost to the confluence of the American, maybe in town to catch a show?
