I am inviting you to participate with other like minded people this May 20th! There is really no drama involved just a quiet 15 minutes. I just love whales.  I want them to be part of the world forever. That is what prompted me to be an organizer.

Hands Across The Sand is an organization which is in favor of using clean energy.  We need to start moving away from fuel which pollutes and move towards clean energy.  It is just common sense and that is what Hands Across The Sand is all about.  Just a peaceful way of communicating to our elected officials that we are serious.  We are drawing a line in the sand. To learn more about Hands Across The Sand click here.
This May 20th we will be meeting by Surfside Seafood or by the Port Hueneme Pier and then we will just join hands and form a line in the sand. It will not be an all day thing....just a quick 15 minutes and then you are free to grab some delicious food or go fishing or for a walk and enjoy our lovely Port Hueneme Beach Park.
Event Day Tips

Use only approved locations. This includes beach access and parking, plus parks and recreational areas.
Create a long line, or as many lines as you wish.
Be courteous and respectful to those who disagree with your view.
Please steer clear of bird nesting areas (refer to Audubon’s recommendations).

If at beach, stay away from sea turtle nesting areas (visit Sea Turtle Oversight Protection for more information).

In addition, respect any flora and fauna (plants and animals) for your particular region.
Leave nothing but footprints...and enjoy yourself!

HANDS ACROSS THE SAND COMES TO PORT HUENEME

HANDS ACROSS THE SAND COMES TO PORT HUENEME

 

 

I am proud to announce that I am organizing The Hands Across The Sand Event for Port Hueneme this May 20th. What is Hands Across The Sand you ask?

How to
Join Hands
on May 20, 2017

STEP 1: Go to an event location near you at 11 AM, in your time zone, for one hour, rain or shine.
STEP 2: Join hands for 15 minutes at 12:00 PM, in your time zone, forming lines in the sand, or on the land, against dirty fuels. Say yes to clean energy and renewables.
STEP 3: Leave only your footprints. In addition, consider getting involved in a local organization that supports clean energy.

So I kind of love whales, they just fascinate me. That is why I decided to organize a Hands Across The Sand Event here in Port Hueneme.

The sperm whale was immortalized in Moby Dick, and the creature looms just as large in life as in literature. Fully grown males can reach 60 feet in length and weigh more than 60 tons. Sperm whales have the largest brain of any creature that has ever lived.

 

Sperm whales are currently imperiled by entanglement in shippng nets and collisions with ships, along with the noise and pollution associated with offshore drilling. inhalation or ingestion of oil can kill the animals directly or lead to chronic illness and organ damage.

What citizens can Do

• Support designation of marine sanctuaries and other marine protected areas where sperm whales and other marine life are buffered from disturbances caused by shipping and industrial development.

  • Encourage reductions of human-made underwater noise at sites important to sperm whales. This includes stopping seismic surveys when towed air guns are within 1/3 mile of whales.
  • Urge your elected offcials to pass comprehensive climate change legislation that addresses the impacts of global warming on wildlife and our natural resources.

As time passes we are getting smarter and smarter.  We have learned that what we do on the planet has consequences.  Our neighbor here in Port Hueneme is well.....the Port. Large shipping vessels are BIG time polluters. The IMO, which regulates shipping for 168 member nations, has enacted new mandatory standards for phasing in cleaner engine fuel. By 2020, sulphur in marine fuel must be reduced by 90%. Let's just make sure they know we are committed to them seriously cleaning up.

It may raise the cost of fuel but it may also save our Oceans and our Marine Life. I am not being extreme I just want us to be considerate of our Marine Life who share the ocean.  Let's stay with the plan to move the shipping lanes out  migratory path of whales.  Let's keep with the plan to slow down these huge vessels just a tiny bit so if there is an accident it is not fatal. Let's clean up the fuel we use in the Ocean.  To me it seems pretty simple.  

Large shipping vessels use the cheapest fuel made.  It is also the highest polluting fuel. I think the shipping industry will survive even if they pay a bit more for fuel and pollute less.

Please join us. We will all be meeting at Surfside Seafood...then walk on to the beach and well... Hold Hands Across The Sand for 15 minutes. And yes I have  designed a T-shirt to commemorate this event and raise money! To view the shirt and or purchase it click here.

The Port Hueneme Life Style = CASUAL

The Port Hueneme Life Style = CASUAL

Port Hueneme is a Beach Town.  People like to relax here.  It is after all, the "Resting Place" according to the Chumash Indians.

I like to eat at Surfside Seafood because the view is great, it is right on the beach and I can have a cocktail and I do not have to get dressed up. I like to wear T-shirts, Hoodies and jeans or even better sweat pants.  I am a beach bum!

One of my favorite activities is just to walk around.  To the end of the pier.  To the Lighthouse.   Down over by Surfside ii and the nature preserve.

The only other place I can even imagine living would be .....CLOSER TO THE BEACH!

Port Hueneme inspires me and gives me peace of mind.  I am an official meditator now.  Yes, I will admit it freely I meditate and it really has helped me in my life. Every morning and every night since August, 2016, I have been meditating and I love it.  I am a beach bum.

I had the good fortune to be raised by a Mother and a Father who took my family camping often. One of their favorite destinations was ..you guessed it, the beach.  So now just walking around my neighborhood takes me back to my childhood memories of camping at Ventura Fairgrounds and sitting and just watching the waves.

I do not want fancy like Santa Barbara or crowded like Huntington.  I want simple, calm, quiet and casual Port Hueneme.
