week 14--Kathleen H. collects 1/2 bag of cig butts in zone 5
Am walking again tomorrow am.. and am sure there will be more finds. Yesterday besides assorted kiddie toys, dinosaur, pail, pair of flip flops (new), included a towel, dirty boy diaper, fishline with hook, string, string with balloon piece, half gallon bag of cig butts. plastic baggies. lots near the Oceanic pier.. cigar butt, bottle caps and bottles (total 2 gal).. and.. the piece de resistance.. half of a fishing net; weighed about a lb. big.. No bras or undies.
PS at 6:30am came upon a guy in the inlet near the Coast Guard dock, shampooing himself and his dog. I told him the ranger was nearby and there was a fine for dogs on the beach. Told him Carolina and Topsail did allow leashed dogs and wished him a good day. He thanked me.. but as I walked away he began calling me names; started off with 'treehugger'. I kept walking and the voice and name calling escalated into names I can't write here. I called the police. don't know if they came..
have a great weekend.
