The Rainbow Warrior

Yes, this is indeed THE Rainbow Warrior III - the infamous campaign vessel used by Greenpeace. It was docked a few blocks from my house last week and I was able to go on board and have a tour! Another check off the bucket list :-). Pretty sure if I was a teenager I would have tried to stow away.

This visit they were protesting the tar sands in Alberta and helping to raise awareness to free the 30 crew being held in a Russian prison for a peaceful protest against arctic drilling.

I am not sure how or when, but posting on this blog has become my most accurate platform for creative expression. It's so inspiring to browse through other blogs and every comment is very appreciated!
