This monument is larger than myself. It is made of iron. There are whale bones. The monument is to protect the whales. We can see the monument from far as it is high. I looked over the memorial and saw the ocean. Worthwhile to see!

We went for a walk to watch the sunset over the ocean and walked by this building. There were several people playing musical instruments together and we stopped to listen. Interesting place with a beautiful ocean view

We’ve been to a couple of memorials on this road trip and they have been very suspect. This memorial is nicely done. You have a great tribute, beach access, a lovely ocean, clean and sterile environment.
