And there was SO much more. My beloved Newgale, I had never seen so much stuff on it before, surely we MUST reduce our use of plastics .

To cope with the sadness, I look for gems of colour and design which I hope to make pieces of art with. The unknown human stories attached to each item fascinate me.

I think it hints at jellyfish.
