Tell the Tale of The OctoFlood and Win Valuable Prizes

It was no April Fool’s joke, but rather a malicious act by an sneaky cephalopod. On February 12, 2009, the site of the crime was the Santa Monica Pier Aquarium. Here’s what happened:

Turning lemons into lemonade (which is probably better than turning octopus into fried calamari) the Santa Monica Pier Aquarium is running The Octopus Flood Art & Story Contest. There are 2 categories Grades K – 2 and 3 – 5 and lots of valuable prizes are at stake. So join in the fun and spin a yarn about this cephalopodic misadventure.  Entry deadline is April 15, 2009.

  1. Peter…..i have enjoyed your blog….if you check out my website you will understand why…..but i am writing to tell you about a new book “Women of the Sea” by John and Patience Wubben…..its available through the authors or the Columbia River Maritime Museum in Astoria, Oregon…..its a fascinating collection of stories about some incredible women, one of whom you may already be familiar with, Captain Debbie Dempsey, the first women graduate of Maine Maritime with a long and distinguished career….its about West Coast women who work in the maritime industry…..i am honored to be included as a maritime artist….but the book is really about women with stories and histories….anyway, just thought you’d be interested……..
