Moby Dick's Revenge

One of the many cool atractions of Blackgang Chine on the Isle of Wight was a place called Moby Dick's Revenge. It had Moby Dick, strangely turned blue, next to the Pequod (hey, they did their research, at least sometimes) and you could enter by his mouth. You'd get sprayed by water jeysers, otherwise okay. It was just a cool place that got Wolfie quite amused. For me, it was an opportunity to tell him about the novel, which I first read when I was 12. My very first work of serious, classic literature, which fascinated me for years. It still does. I need to reread it one day.

A blue Moby-Dick? Sacrilege!
