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.
