After the three day noreaster blew over, I went walking along the beach to see what the tides brought it. I was amazed at the amounts of flotsam and jetsam that the tides brought in.

Notably, there was a lot of footwear. Most of it were singles, but I did find a pair of running shoes that someone left behind. I also found a pair of swim glasses. Mixed with this, was a whole lot of garbage.

I was reminded of the recycle operation on the Indian Ocean. A group of Kenyan people collect the flip flops that wash up on the coast and craft them into jewelry, sculptures and toys. The youtube video of this successful operation can be seen by clicking this link:
