Storm and Trash

Mentioned that huge wind and rain that came up so suddenly the other night that forced us inside. The next morning, yesterday, there was a super high tide that brought in tons of driftwood and plastic trash. Many people were out collecting it and carting it off. Only time that's happened in the time we've been here - over a year. They get a lot of plastic trash mid December to mid February, as has been mentioned here, over in Kuta and Seminyak, but only a little bit here now and then. The plastic in the ocean problem has yet to be taken seriously enough worldwide. It is having much more than cosmetic consequences and needs to be reversed ASAP.

Water and air, the two essential fluids on which all life depends, have become global garbage cans.Jacques Yves Cousteau (from decades ago)
