Looks like how I felt tonight when I saw thousands of styrofoam flecks speckling
the sand at the tide line again.
The tide retreated to the lowest I've seen in months, letting off that low-tide-odor. But the crisp December air, and sunset made up for any unpleasant smells.
And yet another black plastic bag... This one makes the 4th consecutive cleanup that I've found a black single use plastic bag during my 20 minutes on the sand.
Three placid, and one bossy Royal Tern. Royal Terns are the Clydesdales of Terns.
I am really enjoying all the winter migratory birds around our beach.
