Gorilla Toothbrush

The most entertaining trawl to date surfaced two pen caps, a Korean toothbrush, and to much amusement, a grey plastic gorilla among the usual unidentifiable bits and pre-production nurdles. I’ve made a deal with Marcus, and should we happen to catch a lion, it’s mine.

Sea state is a bit calmer today, but we’re still racing North for the elusive high pressure zone that has been ‘two days away’ for the past 5 days running. It’s getting cooler now – we were about level with San Francisco yesterday. To follow our exact location follow the link to the Algalita website and register for the ship to shore blog.

  1. I do hope you threw back the poor crab. Enjoying hearing about your adventures almost as much as I enjoy eating your eggplant!

    1. I’m afraid the little crab ended up like much of the sea life caught up in our samples – sacrificed and preserved in the name of science. This did come up at dinner today, and apparently people that study marine birds still shoot their desired specimens out of the sky (!).
