We saw this all over Manzanita Beach this past Memorial weekend. It's very sad.

I found continuous a high tide line of plastic waste from Lincoln City to Pacific City and I wouldn't be surprised if it covers the entire Oregon Coast.

It seems awfully discouraging, in how humanity is being adulterated by the poisons of "progress".

Isn't that upsetting? We have noticed similar plastic trash on several beaches at the high tide mark.
