I used to play on this whale 50 years ago in 1962.
There’s a similar kind of whale in my hometown of Corpus Christi. My reaction as a kid was, of course, to jump straight into its mouth.
I remember being promised to have one built in our backyard in Manila. It never happened, my father had a wading pool built instead.I remember staying up late at night dreaming about all the many things I could do in there. A small cinema, a home for broken things, beetle castles, a pool, a cave… it went on forever.
