Today marks the 50th post of the Beachcomber Blog! I can't believe it has come so far from my original brainstorm to catalog marine and tsunami debris. Over the last 49 posts, I've been fortunate to have almost 4,000 page views, viewers from more than ten different countries, and friends and family who have encouraged and helped me along the way. I'd also like to thank BrainJar Web Marketing (Gresham, OR) for helping me to optimize my blog, and make it much more visible to potential readers. I would very much recommend BrainJar if you are considering promoting your website, company, or product.
Thank you all so much!
From boats, to bouys, to docks, to hitchhiking fish, and even science, I thank each and every one of you who have taken time to read my blog. I hope that I can continue to provide a useful and sometimes entertaining marine news source for many posts to come.

One More Boat Washes Ashore in British Columbia
And, in a news story that was not very widely reported, around May 1 another Japanese vessel has washed ashore on Swindle Island, Queen Charlotte Sound of British Columbia. The vessel, another small skiff, could still float, and had Japanese characters written on the bow. More information as I can find it!

Keep an eye out for my next post: Fishing float rides out two tsunamis to end up on BC shores. But that's all for today: so long, and thanks for all the fish!
