here are some new photos. we spent last weekend at a rented beach house out at the coast just like we did last year around this time (98, 99, 100). the beach was beautiful but very depressing. there was so much garbage and plastic everywhere. nicole found so many plastic bottles with asian labels all over. she filled several trash bags just casually walking between the house and the town. i can’t imagine how many bags you could fill if you picked up every piece just to have to start over again the next time the tide comes back in.
