Thanks for the translation, Kerry, very interesting. The red soda can had "Coca Cola" on the other side, couldn't tell you if it was Chinese or Japanese in the fine print.

The round, white, donuts looking thing is a light bulb and the green bottle is a tea bottle. The red bottle looks like it has Chinese writing instead of Japanese.

The yellow ball has Japanese character writing on it. The magnified characters are katakana, which is Japanesed English words. They say: "Furoto" , or if pronounced quicky: "froto", which translates to the English equivalent of "float".

Nice, I live right on the beach in Waldport and have been finding lots of "garbage" as well. :) Each storm/high tide seems to bring in a little something each time.
