This guy is a member of our boat owner association. I am also involved in beach cleanup.
This is heart breaking.
So much work and years of effort. Gone

Intrersting side note about washed up shoes.
One beach will be covered with left shoes.
Another will only have right shoes.

The curve of the shoe.

Nothing ruins a wilderness experience like human crap strewn about.

Maybe we can turn this into jobs for the unemployed and sue the Japanese for damages to our environment. Bad joke, at least this was debris from a natural disaster not human negligence. The east coast of Mexico looks just like this except it's crap from Europe , Africa and South America.
