I’m sunburnt (factor 30 wasn‘t strong enough)
I’m sunburnt (factor 30 wasn‘t strong enough)…and happy…never thought I’d say those two things in the same sentence.
We woke this morning to brilliant sunshine, the rain had gone. Scott and Patricia did a quick check of the harbour and The Cove while the rest of us enjoyed a leisurely breakfast….The boats had not gone out again today because of the festival.
Then it was time to grab out swim stuff and head to Taiji. It was busy when we got to The Cove .. We had been beaten there by film crews, reporters, police…The Cove is gaining in notoriety…guess that means SSCS are doing what we are here to do which is getting the message out.
When I first visited The Cove I was very aware that I was being filmed and photographed, either by the fishermen or reporters. It’s only a few days later and it no longer makes me feel uncomfortable. So while Scott networked we escaped the heat of the sun in the cool water…click click click…We swam out and into the entrance of The Cove, click click click and after our swim we sat on the beach drying, click click click..I was just relieved the camera’s didn’t follow us to the rest room lol
I was hoping to get some beauty sleep lol before I have to step in front of the camera’s again tomorrow (we bumped into reporters on the way back from dinner tonight and they said they’d see us there at 7 am…) but we’ve been invited by Steven Thompson onto a conference call from 12pm - 2am, I understand a lot of people, representing several different conservation groups, will be dialling in for a “brain-storming” session, there will be celebs and sponsors …oh and John and I …..I think we’ll just be listening.
And for those asking, yes still veggie …..
For the Oceans, with Sea Shepherd…. our little bit…
