Join me in the cold, dark, life-sustaining NE Pacific Ocean to discover the great beauty, mystery and fragility hidden there.

Jacques and Jackie?

I have reached the pinnacle of what I could have hoped for in my life. The apex! The summit! ☺️

A finger puppet has been made of me AND it has been coupled with Jacques Cousteau.

Yes, it’s the Jackie / Jacques finger puppet set made with love for our Marine Education & Research Society online auction by dear Kerri Reid.

I am sharing this with you in part to make you smile but also, to let you know about this auction that is so essential to the work we do as the Marine Education and Research Society.

Please see ALL the unique, marine-themed, sustainable goodness in the online auction at this link.

And to Kerri, one billion thank yous for all the joy this brings. 💙

    These are completely adorable, Jackie!! At one time I owned the whole Jacques Cousteau encyclopedia about life under sea… These finger puppets will have marvellous conversations, n’est-ce pas-?!! 🙂

    The link for the auction site is not working. Just missing a letter, I think.

    I was able to get to the auction through your Facebook page. Lots of wonderful auction items.
