Throwback to the exotic transient (mammal eating) orcas we had last week! Such a cool and rare encounter with T35As, T38As and 5 outer coastals - 4 of which had never before been seen in the Salish Sea! The two mature males had some of the biggest dorsal fins I’d ever seen. I was so lucky to be on the water with these rarely sighted individuals.
This first photo shows one killer whale “spyhopping” - when they briefly push their heads out of the water to see what’s happening above the surface. Orcas do not have amazing vision, but they can see just as well out of the water as under it.

Wear your moon pearls & white roses.. Let’s dive down together & quietly sip tea upon the turquoise seafloor,
drenched in whale songs, visited by fish friends.
When you smile I’ll watch the bubbles rise like shiny wishes... 💫

Big respect to everyone supporting @tinyhousewarriors 🌎

Check out what lead builder Catherine and a badass crew of mainly student volunteers were able to accomplish in 1 week of building at the University of Victoria campus 🦅

There is still some work to do so if you’re in the area & can help out, you can find the crew in front of the Student Union Building @ UVic ⚡️

San Juan Fall. #monochromatic_monday

I took this 8 years ago today when the moon was in Aries, bringing a forthright and brash energy best used to transtion past any difficulties. Taking an entremely difficult or long exam or facing a physical test of any type both are examples of channeling the energy of Mars which the Aries moon beams upon us.
I am currently dealing with an awful cold, so I'm using the nurturing Venusian energy of this week's Taurus moon to my advantage with shameless #selfcare and inner psychosensual #goddesswork.
This upcoming full moon will bring the blessings of a hot bath filled with lavender, chamomile, sweet almond essence, sea salts, and olive oil.

A #bowl is born. I have much work to do to bring it to market but it’s such a wonderful journey, it’s not work at all. #handmadepottery #shoplocal #grouchycrabpottery #ceramics #oneofakind #stoneware #dishwasher #microwave #oven #saturna #salishsea

Mystical morning on the Salish Sea! #fog #salishsea #totempole #quiet

This quote really resonated with us and we thought it was a fitting way to start the week to honor the memory of Paul Allen and let his legacy inspire us. We hope it inspires you too. ——

musing in this blossom-for-me heat, fashioning gurus out of driftwood to keep my company at ease — how easy it is to please this biologically needy body, I’ll take another hit of the punchline please #salishsea #aphrodisiac #heavydreaming #victoria

The return home after three awesome weeks in Victoria. Sailed on the Salish Sea, dipped my feet in the bridal falls, relaxed on one of my favourite beaches in the Shuswap, and witnessed the life and death of the sockeye salmon run at the Adams River. More pics from my 2nd RRU residency to come! #salishsea #bcferries #bridalfalls #rosscreek #shuswaplife #shuswap #sunnybrae #adamsriver #sockeyesalmonrun #salmonrun #bannock #rru #masters

Debbie Tuepah / Salish Sea, J35 Less 1
City Atrium Gallery | September 26 - December 10, 2018 “Debbie Westergaard Tuepah is a Surrey-based visual artist who uses primarily yarn, paint, found, and readymade objects to consider the conceptual and embodied experience of information in relation to contemporary issues and events.

Tuepah’s 3-dimensional works comprise of networks of material representing systems, modes of measurement and visceral realities. Tuepah’s interest in information and data began in her previous marketing career, where she researched and analyzed millions of data elements to understand, predict and influence human behaviour.

Tuepah on her work: ‘Believing that we exist in a state of information overload and that we are intricately involved in a communicative experience that connects and disconnects us to others, I observe how information can be strident in its revelation of real events or can evoke abstract ideas pertaining to politics, economics, health, science, the environment, or social constructs.’ Tuepah has exhibited her sculpture, installation, painting and community engagement works both nationally and in the US.

After a lengthly business career Tuepah returned to university where she received a BFA from Emily Carr University of Art + Design in 2011. Tuepah received the ECU Chancellor’s Award for Excellence, she has been nominated and shortlisted for a number of awards and public art competitions, and was profiled in “Studio Magazine’s Under the Radar”. She has served as Vice President and Treasurer on the ECU Alumni Board, is a founding member of the curatorial collective AgentC Projects, and is a member of CAM, a group working to develop a board-directed contemporary art gallery and arts centre in South Surrey,” (information by North van arts council) https://nvartscouncil.ca/events-exhibitions/debbie-tuepah-salish-sea-j35-less-1/ #engageartvancouver #supportlocalartists #artinvancouver #salishsea #art #whales #pipeline #britishcolumbia

Friends, we have 3 weeks left, to call every single day no matter where on earth you live, to tell Governor Inslee that you want these Orcas to survive. That you won’t stand for watching their extinction silently. That you want the dams breached this year, in 2018. .
Pictured here is K25 Scoter taken on September 30 with evident signs of a depression forming behind his blowhole, also known as peanut head which is vivid evidence that he’s malnourished and starving. His whole pod of Southern Resident Orcas are starving and we can and will be their champions.
Together let’s save our Orcas! .
