Cleaning the beaches out at remote Kahuku yesterday. Ghost nets, buoys, and plastic as far as the eye can see...out at the ends of the Earth, witnessing the end of the Earth...
Had a great time cleaning up and even found a perfectly good knife buried in the sand.
Afterwards I met some local fisherman who are in their 60s and 70s and we talked story about the changes they've seen to this once pristine strip of shoreline.
I wonder how bad it'll be when I'm 60...
Kalei and Al had the awesome opportunity yesterday to spend the day teaching middle school students how to build sand sifters, discussing ocean plastics and ghost nets, and hopefully inspiring them to be better stewards of the environment.
Its days like yesterday that make it all worth it!!!
