Here is a tempter for you. This is some of the pieces that arrived on Saturday with Cindy's plastic bag sea garden in the centre.

We had a wonderful time with Mark Rodrigue from Parks Vic last Saturday. Mark shared his knowledge about Victoria's reef systems with us and had lots of wonderful images to accompany his talk.  I've had great feedback about how much you all learned about our local marine environment. Thank you Mark for your enthusiastic support of our project and your willingness to share your knowledge with us. Mark has also provided a DVD of underwater footage of Victoria's marine environment for us to play during the exhibition. There is a wonderful team of people from all professions and walks of life that are contributing to this project. Thank you to everyone who is helping make this a reality. Just to give you an idea as to how far afield our reach has got in Melbourne, this is where people came from to attend last Saturday: Phillip Island, Mornington, Mentone, Carnegie, Oakleigh, Glen Iris, St Kilda, Lara, Northcote, Thornbury, Coburg, Bundoora, Ringwood, Croydon, Mitcham, Doncaster, Upwey, Ferntree Gully, Ferny Creek, Belgrave, Selby, Monbulk, Gembrook and Warburton.  I've also been getting pieces by mail from as far afield as NSW and Alice Springs !! Thank you all for your outstanding effort ! This is definitely shaping up to be an exhibition to remember.
