Who Weeds the Ocean?

Who weeds the ocean?  We have a friend who grew up in the deserts of Jordan.  One day, sitting together above a cove filled with floating kelp and seaweed, he asked if anyone ever cleans up the cove waters.  It makes me smile to think of his question and yet...someone does...last week on the sands in Carmel, the autumn currents had tugged up the roots of the weeds of  the sea and, once loosed, the tendrils of the deep were beached.

Friday October 10 was a cloudy calm day...just ask these birds.

or this child...

The Butterfly Circus happy I saw this short can too.

It is easy to miss opportunities and we just barely became aware in time of a free filming of a series of short movies in the Carmel Art & Film Festival...
 What a fun way to see new films...on a bluff of sand on the Carmel beach just after sunset.

                  This is the blow up screen set up on the beach  at this point only partially inflated...

and this is the view to the west...

One of the films, The Butterfly Circus, received the Clint Eastwood Filmmakers Award.  That is a link to part one (10 minutes on you tube)...and here is the link to part two, but once on you tube you should  see the part two link there as well.

Be prepared for a very fine is a lovely little film starring Nick Vujicic, a man who is sometimes described as having no hands, no legs and no worries...

I hope you enjoy it!
