Plastic on Beach After Big Surf

HUGE surf at Seacliff today after last night’s rain- the waves must have been 8 feet high crashing straight down on the sand. The wave photos are impressive, but the amount of garbage that got churned up and dumped was truly shocking. Two neighbors passed me carrying bags of sand toys previously lost at sea, several people had co-opted dog poop bags for trash containers. Thousands of plastic bottle caps, food wrappers – don’t let anyone fool you that this stuff just disappears. It felt like someone dumped a bag of garbage in my front yard.
