Day 256 - Feb. 18, 2012

lifeguard tower 26 - Ocean Park, Santa Monica CA
trash collected for 20 min. 
4.3 pounds 
954.4 pounds total 

Little plastic gems like this one always hide in the debris at the high tide line. 

But on a positive note, these photographs of Bottlenose Dolphins catching a ride on a Humpback Whale astound me. You read that right. Now see for yourself. 

The kind folks at GARBO GRABBER sent me this nifty device to collect trash. It turns out this little gadget makes my collection go smoother, and I think I collect more because I am not stooping over, just cruising along snapping up debris. Thanks GARBO GRABBER - your little grabber rocks!

I've been thinking about our President since we saw his Marine 1 Chopper cruise over the beach last week. In fact, I've seen him fly over at least three times in the last year! My fantasy is that he's checking out the surf, thinking "man-o-man why does D.C. have to be on the East Coast?" He's a kick ass body surfer. Now who are you going to vote for? Really. Could we get someone better? I'm clearly biased.


  1. I hear ya Sara!. I so agree w/you.. Trouble is, there are some out there that figured he could fix the issues in a heartbeat... Little do they know, anyone in office can't fix a damn thing in a milisecond... It took years for us to be in this mess and it will take years to get us out.. The trick is to have a leader w/determination, to keep fighting the fight.. To walk the walk and not just talk the talk.

    1. Agreed :) Thanks for your comment. And for your continued interaction and support of The Daily Ocean. I look forward to your comments.

  2. Much of the trash in the oceans originated on land. Voice your concern to retailers who have an opportunity to set an example. Redeem a CLEAN UP COUPON today @
