Jessica Watson - Wall to Wall Blue

"Along with the flying fish I've been seeing quite a bit of plastic and rubbish floating past recently, it looks so out of place and ugly drifting by on the swell. So I've resolved to put a lot more effort into refusing plastic bags and using less plastic when I get home."...Jessica Watson.

Jessica posted the most beautiful picture of wall-to-wall blue the other day. Sadly, she also expressed her disgust at the amount of rubbish she has been sailing past lately and declared that she will be more mindful of her use of plastic when she gets home.

I hope all those who read Jessica's post and also take the time to visit me here will be inspired to think about how they can contribute to the conservation of our planet.

Every little bit helps and, at the end of the day, it starts with the choices that we make.

Who knows, maybe some day in the future we may even see mermaids again. Some may even surface to share pampering sessions with the Jessica Watsons of the future. :-))


  1. Full credit to you Sam for advocating for a cleaner, safer, healthier environment!

    Love those colours! :)

    Cheers, Soldier's Mum :)

    Hi Samurai,
    I think you outdid yourself this time Sam, that was beautiful. What an artist, the colors were very striking, and I loved the Mermaids. The blue in the ocean is very realistic, keep up the good work.

  3. Continue to LOVE your work Sam - you really are so talented. Thank you - we are enjoying the ride with you!

  4. Hi Sam,
    When did we see mermaids? Seems like you've done a bit of long distance solo sailing yourself, lol.
    ♥♥♥Happy VD to you too♥♥♥ (Just don't tell the missus)

  5. Hi, Sam!

    That's Jesse's photo of the beautiful blue sea, and Ella's bow . . . isn't it?
    Great picture. I love that you've included all the Ella products laid out for Jesse's use! Very clever!!!

    I've asked Jesse, too, to please include some of her music when she sends a video. They are always too short to suit me anyhow, so . . . unless it's expensive,or she's having to conserve space on her camera, or something like that, I hope that she'll seriously consider our request to hear what she's listening to while she's on this trip!

    Bye for now! Keep up the Voyage Art . . . we all love it!!!
