Coastwatch Magazine and ME!
Published on Thursday, February 10, 2011 by

Last summer schools of jellyfish seemed to take over Corolla and all of the Outer Banks.  We are used to seeing the typical clear moon jellies, but for at least a month we encountered jellyfish of all colors.  One afternoon I took out my cell phone and snapped a few shots of some beautiful copper colored jellyfish.  That night I posted them on my Outer Banks blog.

A few months later I was surprised to get an email from Coastwatch Magazine, asking if they could use one of my jellyfish pictures.  I was more than happy to oblige, appreciating the good work they do for the coast.

I have just now received copies of the magazine and can’t believe how beautiful the picture turned out!  I took this jellyfish picture blindly with my cell phone.  The sunlight overhead blacked out my screen, making it impossible to set up a good shot.

That was the mature writer describing the magazine shot above.  THIS is the REAL me upon opening the magazine and seeing my name in print:

“NO WAY!  WOW!  Check it OUT!  It’s Beautiful! COOL!  I’m PUBLISHED!  WOOO HOOOOO!”

I was probably jumping up and down while I said this.

I am not ashamed.
