For Zone 1 Sunday July 3rd the beach was not nearly as bad as I was anticipating. We collected about 4 grocery bags of trash. Most of it was plastic bottles and cans so after recycling it, there wasn't much trash at all.
There was an unusual amount of women's personal items. Among the assortment we found at least a 2-cup size padded insert and a brown pair of ladies bottoms. A friend just called and told me some man lost his bottoms twice today when he was trying to get out past the breakers. At least he was able to hold on to his bottoms without them washing up in the surf or out to sea. Apparently it was just as rough yesterday and the poor lady was not as fortunate. Hopefully it wasn't her insert as well. What a site that conjures up!
