As everyone in the Illawarra region well and truly knows, a dead humpback whale appeared recently floating out to sea, blown up like a balloon before coming to rest at Peggy's. Overnight the tide came up and wind direction changed and whaley came to a permanent landing directly at the end of Sandon Point, attracting crowds far larger than anyone could have predicted, leading to traffic jams, car crashes and even coffee and ice cream trucks setting up shop. Thankfully it only lasted a day, as overnight the poor beast of the ocean was cut into three pieces and carried off to a landfill, however while it lasted he was certainly the talk and smell of the town.
