Early morning was a bit cold, but that didn't stop us from helping our community. This event we volunteered for was organized by Surfrider Foundation of San Diego. There are many branch locations for this organization. This particular location was at Torrey Pines State Beach. They provided Clif Bars and water with the necessities of reusable gloves, bags, and paper bags for cigarette buds. I have to say that this beach was really hard to find any trash because it was already clean! We tried to find as much trash as possible. Maybe that is a great sign, don't you think? We were taking pictures along the way and finding beauty in the nature we were surrounded by. Rocks, shells, the cliffs, the waves, the seagulls, and just time together as a family doing something positive.
My husband left for a few days on business and upon his return we got the chance to help the community with an organization my husband is in which is San Diego Marine Aquarium Society and sdreefs.com. We spent a beautiful afternoon being part of the beach cleanup at Mission Beach with lots of great volunteers. We had awesome sponsors. Sycuan Casino being one of them. There were games, food, and lots of fun. Everyone received a t-shirt as a thank you for helping keep our beaches clean.
