Chelsea records her work
In such a beautiful place it is hard to imagine the amount of trash found just off the beach in Fresh Creek. It almost seems like an official bottle dump. It is certainly an odd juxtaposition to the remote places we visit during the rest of the week. We rarely even see other humans throughout the week on this field study. And yet, during one last snorkel on the beach at Fresh Creek, in front of the lighthouse, we were greeted with a ton of refuse.
It was funny to watch ten or so students begin to silently (as snorkelers can only hope to do) arrange the bottles into some sort of performance art event. Funny. Perhaps next time we'll ask locally for some resources to help them clean up their local ocean.
