If you’ve followed my blog for a while, you are aware of an environmental art project that’s been in the making for three years: One Step at a Time Shoe Exhibition.
On June 11, 2014, we had the official opening and now the exhibition is on display at Once Upon a Dream Gallery and Gift Shop from now until August 16, 2014.
Here’s a little glimpse into the process of collecting, sorting, drying and creating art from shoes and boots – all collected from the North Cape Shores!
Hopefully, this exhibition will help raise awareness about ocean pollution, as well funds to rent boats and remove dangerous plastics from a beach or two!
My last post was on a lovely day with temperatures around 20 C. Yesterday we had temperatures a little above freezing and the day included sun, snow, rain, clear skies and low visibility. This is a glimpse of what June 16, 2014 looked like at 71 degrees north:
Last night we drove up to the North Cape to view the midnight sun and enjoy a glass of wine. The sun was behind scattered clouds, lighting up the nighttime sky. Oh, and did I mention it was 20 C? What a night!
On days like today, those of us who call the North Cape our home, can’t help but smiling. With the air temperatures around 9 degrees Celsius (48 F) and lots and lots of sun, we are breaking out our short sleeve shirts and shorts.
And with the midnight sun, well, we’re breaking out the bubbly and making the most of 24/7 daylight.
In just a little under 3 months the Arctic Race of Norway will be underway. On August 14th the participants will race from Hammerfest to the North Cape plateau. Today the official teaser was released. Here it is!
I’m going to be there……
