I noticed recently that a lot of people come to my blog searching for Tide Times and have probably been sorely disappointed. Here they are for any sailors around the place. I also sometimes need them, as now I am an island dweller, it is handy to know if I am traveling between islands as often the fibreglass speedboats only go from certain places at high tide!
Tonight I couldn’t sleep and I came across this short National Geographic film about a group of artists and ocean debris specialists (weird that we now have a profession listed as that!) who traveled to remote beaches in Alaska, collected tonnes of ocean debris that washes up there, and are making art from it. The exhibition will tour the world and opens in 2014 in Anchorage.
I know some of my readers are artists, photographers, great writers, activists, yachtspeople, and travellers. It would be great to make a similar documentary in Fiji, maybe starting with Levuka, the old capital of Fiji which is remote, almost forgotten, and the landing place of an amazing amount of debris. Is anyone interested. Perhaps people could send in clips from each part of Fiji and we could compile?
Sorry I posted the link on facebook before felt compelled to write this post, so apologies if you get this twice! To view the film: http://newswatch.nationalgeographic.com/2013/08/21/filmmakers-document-the-weirdness-of-marine-garbage/#comment-281943
