Thursday La Mer Maids boat trip! Water was a bit choppy but still glorious. It was a light trash but heavy dolphin day - everywhere we went common dolphins came to play. Funniest trash was a container of Whoop Ass Catfish Bait. It was empty, so we were unable to whoop any catfish ass.
Crew today was Jo, Laura, Capt Pattie and me.

La Mer Maids boat on Wednesday the 18th was exhausting! Sherrie Rohde, Sunny the Wonder Boat Dog, Dee Whitehurst, and Pattie Indictor started out of Marina del Rey Freedom Boat Club Los Angeles & Huntington Beach only to find a ridiculously dirty harbor, and a kelp line FULL of trash only a half mile out. After pulling 374 pieces of trash out of the water (and 1 lone balloon), even Sunny was tired. Good job MerMaids! ... See MoreSee Less
