Can you believe that?!
Once a week, depending on low tide, we
get to are
told to get a UTV (Utility Vehicle) and go out on the spit and pick up trash!
So, we load up all our stuff (
snacks, diet coke, backpack for carrying rocks and things) oops - I mean (trash bags, trash pickers, shovel)
and head out to the spit where we are forced to endure one of the prettiest
beach’s I have ever seen the trashy beach.
As we stop
to take lots and lots of pictures for
just a moment to catch our breath from our arduous tasks, we wonder why we, the
volunteers, have been assigned this momentous task of trash picking.
Alas, among the bull kelp, we find the object of our quest:
Trash. Washed up from the sea.
But seriously, this place is awesome. It looks like we’ve picked up a lot of trash on this outing but this beach is very clean compared to a lot of beaches we’ve been on in Texas and Florida. It seems like everyone that walks out here picks up trash. We’ve had people throw trash they have picked up into our cart as we drive by.
