My Happy Place

I am on vacation this week in Cocoa Beach, FL. We’re in an Airbnb right on the beach, the good kind that is. No sand wedge required.

So far today, we’ve walked about 3 miles on the beach and picked up a bunch of trash.

Why would we walk the beaches picking up trash on our vacation? I can’t stand to see task on the beach. The beer cans can be deadly to sea life too. It also gives me much needed exercise. I am also not thinking about servers or code.

What's the temp?  Forecast?  

Some rain came through, so it’s a bit chilly now. Still outside in a long sleeve shirt, but the natives are freezing. 🤣

It will be in the 70s most of the week.

Tough!

I would think so. I was on the Harley all day and felt like I was going to be blown off the road a few times.

We don't have a coastline where I live in central Europe but I must say the German people are very tidy. You would be verbally criticised for littering here.

Not so here. Some of the items I could have easily blown out of someone's hand accidentally. The shredded shoe is a mystery. The beer cans and water bottles we found are not such a mystery.

Germany was clearly less littered when I visited. Not to excuse anyone in the US but it could be a lot worse. Just look at some of the rivers absolutely filled with garbage in other parts of the world such as in New Deli

Back home and back to reality. On Wednesday there was a bad rip tide that churned up a lot of debris and washed it onto the beach. I was overwhelmed with the amount of trash. It was like the ocean was regurgitating the filth of humanity.
