Beached at the Del Mar Shore access point (near Solana Beach) around 8 a.m., the species, age and cause of death of the whale are under investigation with the help of specialists from SeaWorld.

Sadly, there is a dead whale that washed up onshore in Del Mar. Already the gulls are trying to find a way to get to it.

Otherwise, a coastal flood advisory has been issued until noon Sunday, but a high surf warning will remain in effect all weekend.

Be careful out there, San Diego.
