baby feet and toy soldiers

Big Happy Beach waves are still crashing on the shore but the sun is back making beach combing business a bit easier. To bring a little cheer the sea tossed up the oddest baby sandal I’ve every seen.

think about the future..

Happy Beach was at its most beautiful today in glorious sunshine urging us to clean up as much as possible. Plastic bits in all sizes still wash up on the shores and get buried under the vegetation or wedged between rocks. Among the 5.4kgs collected today were items belonging to babies and toddlers which inspired me to send a little prayer to their parents: Let your children enjoy the diverse wonders of this beautiful world – just like you do. Teach them to respect her seas, woods, mountains and bountiful nature. Peace.

these shoes were made for walking…

There was a 15 minute storm last night stirring up the sea. Come morning the beach had returned to her usual happy spirits but still didn’t manage to suppress countless abandoned items waiting to be claimed. A green plastic tennis racket jumped into view – setting a sophisticated tone to the day. An overwhelming amount of shoes turned up just a few 100m from our site. Flip-flops, sandals and 1 high heel in sizes from 22 to 44. After our visit they all obediently plodded along to the collection point – hopefully showing the way to other lost items.
