A whale carcass washed up on the beach just south of Spanish River Boulevard. Started posting pictures of the washed up whale Thursday. By Friday it was common knowledge that it was a sperm whale, a sub-adult male according to the NOAA people responsible for the necropsy there on Boca's Spanish River Beach Saturday afternoon. It was finally dragged off the shore around 3:30 amid a crowd of at least a hundred people.

If you get around in Boca Raton today you'll notice a lot of new things: new restaurants, new shops, new offices. We've even got some new parks. It's hard to keep track of all the new stuff there is to do and see - a lot harder than when Boca was younger. Now it seems like new places come and go before there's a chance to visit and see what's offered.
