Blogger Beach Cleanup 2
Here are a bunch of Snowy Plover's and a Sea Gull. Snowy Plovers come around and we know winter is coming. They are so cute. If you like them, check out this site and click here. It has beautiful pictures of Snowy Plovers and their hatchlings.
I think this picture looks staged. But really I found these two toys just like this, in this proximity to each other. In fact, I try to take pictures of all the trash I find without disturbing it, and before I pick it up. There is one recent exception to this. Scroll down to see and you'll understand why I made the exception.
Is this a balloon, or a deflated organ? Sorry for the graphic interpretation. Maybe it's the end of the balloon that makes me think of arteries.
Ahhh, the exception mentioned above. Would it not suck to step on this beauty? Jeez, the beach is synonymous with barefoot, maybe not anymore.
Tonight was my 65th day out there and I am really excited to break the 300 barrier. Less than 300 days seems do-able. Could be kidding myself, clearly. At this point it doesn't matter, I wouldn't be able to give up on this project if I had double the amount of days left.

I like this picture don't you? I took it from the parking lot as I was getting into my car.
