Thar she blows!

By Kelly

Have you always wanted to sing those words our from the masthead? Or maybe its the thrill of the Nantucket sleigh ride that calls?

Well now you can go a-whaling on ebay. Yup. A few months ago some marketing mogul thought up The Whale Trail, a public art exhibit of 50 beluga and sperm whale sculptures running in southeastern Connecticut, Westerly, Rhode Island, Newport, Rhode Island, Boston, Massachusetts, and New York, New York. The exhibit is now over and the whales are being auctioned off on ebay as "6ft sculptures perfect for fountains and gardens". Gosh I'd even bid on one if the opening bid was a bit lower than $1000.00 Proceeds will go to worthy charities.

So now is your chance - throw that harpoon.
