I just got back from Normandy Beach. It was still daylight when we got out there. I have to say the beach was completely empty, there were
absolutely no ships at all in the water, only 5 people on the beach, two of them fishing, and the sand was immaculate. Other than a gatorade label,
and a bag from potatoe chips, the only other signs of garbage were sea shells, and a very large horseshoe crab that died and was laying on the beach.
We walked the entire length of both Normandy and Lavellette and there was nothing.
I didn't take any pictures other than a few family shots because there was literally nothing to take pictures of.
I spoke to the two guys fishing. Joking around I said something about the medical waste. They said by 2pm they had it cleaned up and the beaches
were reopened. They said the usual people were around...police, EPA, and the local town cleanup crew.
There was no signs of heavy equipment anywhere, but there were signs that they were there. By this I mean the sand was definetly sifted through.
It's hard to explain what that means if you have never seen it before.
The thing I found to be odd was, the two fishermen told me it was mostly medical waste and tampon applicators. I have not seen a tampon applicator in
years that was plastics. Most now are cardboard, flushable, and biodegradable. The two fishermen said the ones that washed up were pink and white
plastic. So now I'm thinking.....Could the impact of whatever hit the water have stirred up the bottom so much that these items that were buried
under years worth of sand resurfaced and washed ashore?
Something to think about.
If anyone has any question through them out there and I will answer them based on what I saw this evening
