If you know me, I often wear things right after I buy them.
Case in point–this unique patchwork top from Fremont Flea Market in September in Seattle. It’s an asymmetrical design made with three different prints sewn together in a unique swirly pattern with two pockets.
After leaving the market, Jean took us to the harbour where Sea Shepherd was hosting a two-day Open House. Perfect timing that we happened to be in Seattle!
We embarked the Martin Sheen (research vessel) and met the crew which were heading for Mexico in the next few days. Please check out the link! 🙂
The Open House was one of the highlights of our trip to Seattle.
What a pleasant surprised that Jean’s friend, Ruth, happened to be there!
They took us to the lower deck to watch some pertinent videos of what Sea Shepherd is exposing in the research they do, as well their recent endeavours.
Their mission: “Established in 1977, Sea Shepherd Conservation Society (SSCS) is an international non-profit, marine wildlife conservation organization. Our mission is to end the destruction of habitat and slaughter of wildlife in the world’s oceans in order to conserve and protect ecosystems and species.”
Please take one minute to watch …
I first found out about Sea Shepherd in NYC while at The Seed event (an inspiring vegan festival) in 2014.
In the evening, we started watching the Whale Wars television series, which we continued to watch every evening until the end of the season. We were riveted to our seats. You know the feeling when you can’t put a book down–this was like that and we couldn’t turn the TV off!
This is a reality show, real life as it unfolds for the courageous women and men of the Sea Shepherd. Truly inspiring and as horrible as it was to see the cruelty of some humans, I was encouraged to learn that there are still compassionate people in the world who do care! We need them.
I hope you will take some time to check out the links and watch the Sea Shepherds in action.
I thank God for the Sea Shepherds and all who make a difference to help people, animals and our planet. What a wonderful world! Let’s take care of it!
Thank you for reading!
