Crab Floats on a Limb

Most people who love the ocean have a little beach comber in them so finding treasures at the edge of the sea is just a part of life. Floats like these are used by Crabbers to locate the “pot” that sits on the bottom of the ocean and is attached to the surface by a long line of nylon rope. They simply pull the crab pot to the surface and sort out the “keepers”, re bait the pot and overboard it goes. When I find a float laying on the beach my criteria for adding it to my collection (I have more than enough by the way) is it must be intact, still have the line attached and have “soul”, if you will, as evidence of the life its lived.

7th Annual Plein Air & More Weekend June 24, 25, and 26th, 2015 Plein air is a term derived from the French expression “en plein air”, meaning “in the open air” and specifically refers to the act of painting outdoors. Cannon Beach’s popular “Plein Air & More” is a three day event which includes a Friday night “meet & greet” with the participating artists and gallery owners, along with a collaborative show of art work. On Saturday and Sunday, more than fifty artists, represented by Cannon Beach’s art galleries will be creating works of art on location throughout town and on the beach. Many will work in the traditional method of plein-aire painting, while others will sculpt, create and photograph in their own unique styles. Individual galleries display the finished works along with hosting receptions for the artists Saturday and Sunday.
