Barge meets Barge: Vancouver resident shares in marine celebrity's namesake (VIDEO)

"My grandfather was a Barge, my father was a Barge..."

We caught up with a Vancouver woman whose maiden name has been the talk of the town for the last month.

Fatidjah Barge Nestman has been keeping up with the ongoing saga of the English Bay barge since it washed ashore on Sunset Beach over a month ago. The barge was recently thrust into the spotlight even further when the Vancouver Park board erected a new sign near the hulking figure reading "Barge Chilling Beach." 

Vancouver Is Awesome met up with Nestman at the sign to hear the story behind her unique name and what her thoughts are on the barge.
