Day 231 - Nov. 3, 2011

lifeguard tower 26 - Ocean Park, Santa Monica CA
trash collected for 20 minutes
3.4 pounds 
864.7 pounds total

To my great surprise, and pleasure, I ran into my friend Tiffany and her husband as soon as I got out onto the beach. Turns out, her birthday is Nov. 3, and so like most people (not) she decided to celebrate by cleaning the beach before heading to dinner with her hubby. Awesome.

A special thank you to Tiffany for tonight's show. Her friend Lyn, the curator of tonight's show, found me on Tiffany's FB page. Oh, the virtues of FB?!

The poor moon deflated onto the beach!

The other day while I was driving to the beach, I passed two women walking on the sidewalk along Ocean Park Blvd.. A plastic bag blew straight for them. Would they walk around it? Pick it up? Checking carefully in my rear view mirror, I watched with satisfaction as one of them leaned down, and snatched up the bag. I smiled. 

'Twas a dark, and stormy night...
