Sad Spongebob Sighting
I spent the afternoon on a whale watch, seeing majestic creatures do majestic things. Here's my least-favorite sighting of the day - a mylar balloon, approximately 20 miles out at sea. How coincidental that it appears to be a Spongebob Squarepants balloon!
Despite what the balloon industry says, balloons are dangerous to marine life, who can swallow them and/or get entangled in the strings. We see balloons all the time on our whale watches (hundreds each summer, in fact - go here to map them out), and can't always stop to pick them up - so please, always dispose of balloons responsibly!
