Walking the Sand

Time is Flying

Time is flying faster every day. At the risk of sounding even older than I am, it’s just hard to believe the speed at which everything is moving lately. I fear I am barely keeping up.

There is a new video on the You Tube channel on the Basura del Mar, to this point. Between now and the race on June 11th, I’ll be bringing it to a few places so people can get a better look at it, take a pledge to use less plastic, and then sign their names on it somewhere. It will be at the Spring Social, for example.

The Spring Social is another major project going on at the moment… it looks like it’s going to be a fun way to spend an afternoon and help support the ongoing Ikkatsu programs. It will be even more fun if you are there.

I’m leaving tomorrow for Neah Bay and this year’s Coastal Cleanup. I’ll be leading a group of six 10th-graders (or was that ten 6th-graders?), into the pocket cove at Portage Head to collect and carry out everything we can. It’s a pretty rugged climb in and out, through brush, downed trees and muddy gullies, and it always seems like an adventure just finding a way in. (Photos and stories to follow.)

From there, I’m driving to Bellingham for an early start on Sunday, kayaking over to Point Roberts for the night, returning on Monday. I’ve got an article to write and I’ve never been there… this promises to be a whole other adventure.

Stay busy, yes?
