SAS Spring Beach Clean this weekend

beach litter

Plastic – the scourge of modern life. Every time I go to the beach I bring some home for recycling. Its usually a bottle or bit of fishing net, but occasionally something a bit more interesting like a vacuum cleaner hose or – on one memorable occasion, a Toilet Duck bottle with 2 goose barnacles attached. I looked up a recipe in a Rick Stein book and cooked them (barnacles, not duck) for my tea, much to my good lady wife’s disgust. They were lush.

Marine litter is a big menace – it lasts for centuries, kills sea creatures and gets into the food chain. This weekend, SAS are doing their annual Spring Beach Clean and I’ll be there (in Shoreham) to hopefully snag myself some more parasitic percebes.
