I was ready

Did something else

I stand still,
Debbie’s One Word Sunday: Pollution
One day, about a year ago, my bestie and I went to South Ballina Beach to have a pleasant late Autumn day in the warm North Coast sunshine. While we strolled along the beach we noticed a few bits of plastic so we thought we should pick it up. After a while we had gathered enough to have to find a place to put the rubbish we had picked up. Luckily along the beach I found a 20litre bucket so we had somewhere easy to put all we had found.
What we found was plastic. Drink bottles, some with foreign writing so we assumed they came from a freight ship or cruise ship out to sea, 4litre oil containers, shampoo bottles and my find of the day – a toilet seat!!!
Here is our find of plastic pollution that is destroying our oceans, or I should say has destroyed our oceans and marine environment.
So how about when you go to the beach or to a park beside a waterway, pick up a bit of rubbish to help in your small way to help our planet
Sea Turtles eating plastic bags that look like jelly fish, plastic bottles and straws that break down into micro plastics and are ingested by all manner of marine life that fill their stomachs and are unable to pass through, leaving less room for their natural foods, microfibres and microbeads that are used in manufacturing that will always be in our environment. Bio-degradable is a myth unless it is produced from natural products.

Lost in the water
among the oysters
a bottle waits

Debbie from Travel with intent One Word Sunday: Memory
In January, I travelled to Toowoomba to see my daughter. One thing we enjoy is walking around the city discovering places and things. One day I said I wanted to walk the streets and lane ways to discover the street art. A memory of being in Toowoomba and seeing some of the local creativity on show.
I hope you enjoy a bit of a walk around looking at Street Art.
