This was only a small portion of the school children and their parents who were slowly circling the island. Can you tell what they are doing?
Maybe the signs they left behind will give you a clue. This one says "Put your garbage in the proper place to preserve the cleanliness and health of our beaches."
And this carefully handlettered sign says "Take care of our beaches to have a better planet."
Yup, this was a community school project to clean up the beaches and collect trash. I am not going to go into how the trash gets there and who puts it there in this post. I am just overjoyed and thrilled to see the younger generation taking an interest in our planet....and their community.
Right after I snapped the above pictures, I looked up to see this heading our way. Time to scurry back across the street to dryness and safety!
It came on us very fast. Not many people were expecting this downpour. It had started out to be a brilliantly sunny day.
Since she had her bathing suit on already, what was a little rain? Neither rain, nor sleet nor hail shall get in the way of hunting for shells!
You can see how hard it was coming down by the bouncing of it off my neighbor's roof.
