Yesterday, I scored a spot on a boat with @lukebiker to go “Paddy Hopping” I saw a school of Dorado and experienced off shore blue water for the first time. Now, if only I could snag a spot more often!
My kinda walk in the forest. 💦
This picture was taken in an MPA or marine protected area, one which forms only 0,4 percent of our coastline! Actually most of my photos in cape town are taken in MPA’s. Not only does it represent a shadow of what the life of our reefs should look like , they represent whats left to show the next generation. We need more, and we need to get behind @wildoceanssa #OnlyThisMuch in moving towards the goal of 10 percent . And more!!! Now I work both as a sport-fisherman and as a commercial fisherman so i ask the fishing community of SA, educate yourself and understand the cause, it has nothing to do with taking away from our fishing space. It has everything to do with creating a healthier marine system for all. -
We are beyond lucky to get to work with Miranda each day in the Barnacle kitchen. She brings with her a culinary degree from Le Cordon Bleu and years of experience working in kitchens across Alaska and the Pacific Northwest. Miranda joined the team this spring and immediately started teaching us a thing or two and helping us get set up to beautifully and efficiently craft our products day in and day out.
Miranda's passion for food overflows beyond the work day. In her spare time Miranda is working diligently on a degree in food management through University of Alaska Anchorage, and she has been developing a mouthwatering gourmet fry bread menu that has us all like. Yes. Please.
Today we're having a special farewell pop-up featuring Miranda's work! If you're in Juneau, make sure to swing by The Port from 1p to 7:30p today (Monday) to give it a taste and say hi!
"The number of living creatures of all orders whose existence intimately depends on the kelp is wonderful. A great volume might be written describing the inhabitants of one of these beds of sea-weed." - Charles Darwin
I was lucky enough to be able to go snorkelling near Durdle door a few weeks ago. It was soo much more peaceful under the water (my favourite place) instead of staying on the busy beach during a hot Saturday in August. The clarity of the water was super clear so I got to see masses of beautiful kelp (and many crabs 🦀, fish 🐟and an eel!) I'll bring my scissors ✂️ next time! Now to find some kelp in these amounts around the island...
