We all know the ocean is in trouble these days, warming water, algal blooms, acidification, and now a swarm of plastic jellyfish have invaded long time favorite The Boat House.

These jellies were made from Korean made plastic fishing net floats that washed ashore on Point Reyes National Seashore beaches. The tentacles are fashioned from crab fishing rope that washes ashore constantly as well.

Since all the plastic trash we humans fill the ocean with (9 million metric tons each year and growing) is deconstructing the ocean as we know it, I decided to deconstruct some of the marine trash and build some plastic reminders of what we are doing to the planet.

You can make one of these jellies yours with a donation of $40 or more.

Stop by The Boat House any day from 11:30 – 7:00 for some of their famous fish & chips, clam chowder, coleslaw or any of their other delicious dishes. Lots of cold beverages to choose from as well.

They offer take out or dine in service with appropriate mask and distancing protocols to ensure your safety.

The Boat House is located on route 1 in Bodega Bay at – 1445 CA-1, Bodega Bay, CA 94923, across the road from Bodega Bay Grange building.
You can also book a fishing trip aboard the world famous New Sea Angler.






Stinson Beach Library – Found Art

Four artists’ work is on display at the Stinson Beach Library until 31 January, 2012.

Richard James has two of his large meta-bottles on the patio along with 49 jellyfish I made out of Korean fishing-net floats and crab-fishing rope.

Lina Jane Prairie has baskets made from kelp and the same rope I use for tentacles.

John Norton is showing a few of his collections of similar items found on the beach.

Tess Felix has created two mermaids and a few portraits, mosaics actually, all from the bits of petroleum-based plastic we humans discard every minute of every day which wash ashore on the world’s beaches and are eaten by birds and fish the world over every minute of every day.
