Beautiful sunset, right?

Trash washed ashore California
Trash washed ashore with Santa Monica Pier in the background

Look a little closer, though. There is trash everywhere. Santa Monica just had its first rainfall in over a year. There was a break in the rain this evening, so I decided to go for a jog on the beach after work. I was shocked by how much trash I saw.  Dog waste, hazardous waste, but most of all, plastic waste. The rain has washed all of the trash lingering on the streets and in the gutters down into the ocean. I took a couple of pictures – but this fails to capture that this goes on for miles in every direction
