Nick and I have committed to sponsoring one beach clean-up per month. Yesterday was our second official clean-up!! It was successful in that we completed our purpose...we cleaned up the beach! However, we are trying to make it a social affair...bringing people out who have similar goals in mind and hanging out, grilling out, playing football, enjoying the beach, etc. Well, for the second time, we were the only two to show up. Boo! We cleaned up a BUNCH of trash, though! Tons of cigarette butts, plastic pieces from surfboards and body boards, food, drinks...I mean, you would be AMAZED to see the amount of crap that people leave behind. AND, they think that if they bury it, it will disappear! Oh man. It's a good thing that I am very passionate about cleaning up the beach because I would get too angry to continue, otherwise!
Great thing about living in Hawaii?? This beach is half an hour's drive from my front door!
