My family has always had a tradition of leaving a beach or park cleaner than we found it.

So, whenever I went to the beach, I took along a bag to gather litter and things that were washed ashore. Did the whole beach in front of my hotel!

Funny things found.....four flip flops, none matching of course. A bra.....wonder what that story is behind that? Three pencils. A

LOL at the bra - was it your size?? hahahaha!

The beach we went to last year (Long Beach, CA close to the marina) was completely trashed. We stayed at a condo on the beach and saw the tractor come out each morning with one of those things that drags behind it and picks up the trash and seaweed. Blech. I can't believe how much stuff was left there and/or washed up each day.

That particular bay is also part of the harbor so it stood to reason that some junk would float over...but some was just litterbugs and topless women, I guess!
