365 Project – 112: Earth Day Beach Cleanup – Port Angeles, WA (April 21, 2012)

Shutter Speed: 1/200, Aperture: F/16, ISO: 400

During our beach cleanup this morning these rowers whizzed by, reminding me that one of the reasons we choose to take care of our local beaches, and planet, is  so we can enjoy nature’s amazing playground. Mostly we found cigarette butts, food wrappers, and cans. It’s amazing that litter still happens. Seriously, how hard is it to PICK…UP…YOUR…OWN…TRASH???!!!  I happened to find a wheel of some sorts buried in the sand near the low tide line, pictured below. Some speculated it was an antique steering wheel from a boat or car. I wonder what it’s story is? Wreckage from a sunken boat, something washed up from Japan? Hmmm… Well, it felt great being amongst other volunteer adults and kids caring for our beaches. Thank you to everyone for celebrating Earth Day, and EVERY day, by keeping our planet clean! 🙂
