Remains of dead whale buried under Rockport parking lot
This whale tale has come to an end. The dead finback first spotted floating in Boston Harbor close to a month ago has finally been laid to rest under the parking lot of Cape Hedge Beach in Rockport. The burial on Thursday capped an unusual odyssey, one that had spawned an odd tourist attraction on the rocky shores of Cape Ann. The 55-foot whale was seen Oct. 7 in South Boston waters. Coastal communities had braced themselves as the huge carcass bobbed about.
