Actions & Comments

We started our mile at Rabbit Gulch near the north end of mile 287. Before reaching the beach we found an abandoned "Radio Flyer" wagon. We elected to regard the wagon as trash since it was filled with rain water and was rapidly rusting because of this. The wagon did prove handy as we were able to bring back much more trash with it than we could have without it. (See photos.)If there were no such thing as plastic our collection would have consisted of the wagon, 2 or three glass bottles and a couple of crushed aluminum cans. As it was, we had far more than could be carried in one trip without the aid of the wagon.The plastic, for the most part was quite fresh. When the country of origin could be determined, China seemed to get the prize. (Either Chinese fishermen are bombarding the coastal waters with trash or an inordinate number of local fisherman buy their consumable supplies at Owagimya.)

A quiet day at the beach - just a handful of folks strolling along the shoreline, only one of whom had a dog with them.
