We’ve just returned after a 10 day trip abroad to find Happy Beach in very bad shape. The last couple of days storms and heavy winds have been inciting fierce waves to toss up alarming amounts of plastic and waste onto her shores.
This soft, gentle beach has been converted into an angry graveyard for debris, plastic, pipes, bottle tops and more plastic. Junk climbing all the way up the grassy slopes even reaching the collection point.
Today was merely reconnaissance with a heavy heart…. and tomorrow: the work begins – again. What a homecoming!
