Was it Churchill who said that “golf is a good walk spoiled?”
Well I say litter is a good run ruined, a good family day by the sea (like today!) spoiled, a good earth wasted.
I can’t believe that in 2015 there exist people who litter. I thought we’d have evolved beyond those lesser developed neandrathalic-morons by now. But, no. Like this waste beside the ocean, my runs are often littered with roadside rubbish. Everything from microwaves to condoms, tires to the ubiquitous fast food coffee cups. It irks the hell out of me to live in such a beautiful part of the world and have it scarred by detritus in the ditch. That’s right detritus.
When I head back to this otherwise stunning slice of shore next, I’m bringing a garbage bag.
