Wow!! I wonder how many hours were logged on that front porch swing? I know we spent a huge amount of time on ours at our old beach house. Sure brings back memories!

I attended an offshore Training course wayyyy back, and they showed us a film called
"nothing goes in the gulf", it showed us that everything that you throw out in the gulf somehow ends up washing ashore from matagorda to brownsville !!

The items you can find washing up are far from over. Beach clean up this year will be a lot of work and probably very interesting as well. Lots of stuff.

One of the people we saw found a lot of those big rubbermaid containers and they had someones address on them from Crystal Beach. I was wondering how far down the debris went also.

We were down on PINS last weekend and the debris field was from 4ft up the dunes to the daily high tide line everywhere. Thousands of tons of plastic, furniture, a sailboat, hot tub, lumber of all sizes (including whole pier and deck sections) and just plain trash. People were pulling out of there with trailer loads of lumber (hope they picked up some trash too).

Despite being an area relatively unaffected by the storm, the clean up will take a lot of effort.

we were in padre and corpus all last week and it was thick all out at Padre Isalnad State Park. The sign read. Take more with you than you brought. We saw computers, recliners, lamps, boats (no kidding) and lots of household items. Sad.

The news crew showed part of a trash container that said "city of galveston" found on beach here.
