Last Sunday three of my friends flew into town for a pre-Thanksgiving visit. One of the first stops we made was the beach to meet up with my friend Kathleen and her family. Along the way three more kids joined us spontaneously. The more the merrier as far as I am concerned. As our group grew we found the usual liter along the sand. More eyes, more plastic to spot and pick up.
Tip #8 to help the ocean - GET A GROUP TOGETHER AND GO CLEAN THE BEACH.
You never know what you will find!
A big thank you to my friends and family who spared part of their Sunday to come care about the ocean, have fun together, and soak in the sun.
