Report Details

Beautiful day. Hauled off as much trash as we could carry. Typical trash, nothing unusual. UpdateJapanese light bulb.While belatedly posting photos (most of which document the active erosion in this area and trash removed) I realized that while the quantity of trash was not unusual there was one item worth noting. An intact light bulb 9.5” long x 4.5” wide which on really close inspection has kanji writing. Tsunami?

38 is a large number of people on this section of beach for any time of year but it was a sunny, windless day so it was perfect for beach walking.
