Dirk Roodt loves the beach. He strolls the beaches near his house whenever he can. By occasion he finds a dead body of a porpoise; a small, dolphin like mammal. When the number of dead porpoises is increasing, he comes to the rescue. A lonesome crusade against brutal fishermen who are protecting their fishing grounds. But is he fighting the real enemy? 

I like to stroll the beach myself. Usually not that early in the morning though. Never found a porpoise on the beach myself. Mostly many tourists...
A visit to ASEAL, a reserve for seals, and an article in the newspaper about the increasing number of porpoises ending up at the shore made me think. 
Or made me fantasize; it all depends how you look at it.
And so is this story. 
Just another look.
A creepy look.
