I wanted to say thanks and congratulations on a job well done to Ms. Bayles (“Resident’s beach cleanup project nears end,” Dec. 5). As a former student at Wallgrove Elementary, a surfer and beach volleyball player and now owner of Shaka Shack Burgers, I have watched firsthand the contamination of our ocean and beaches in this bay we share.
Spending more time on the beach then one would ever admit to, I realized 50 years ago that by picking up trash and putting it in the trash can I was helping to do my part and I am so happy to hear that others have jumped aboard. I hope fellow beach lovers will read about Sara’s efforts and realize what a great civic act one small gesture can make.
P.S. It works on the streets as well. Thanks again and continue on.
