Hitting the beach in the summer. The pure sunlight, the fresh scent of the wind, the shining sand of the beach. That's the way we want it, anyway. But what we want and what we get are not always the same thing. Especially if we are talking a public beach.

Things can get bad if you have one or two litterbugs who come to the beach, throw their trash around, then leave it there for someone else to pick up. Visitors to Dameisha Beach Park in China would have been glad to put up with only one or two litterbugs. Instead, they got thousands! During last summer's Dragon Boast Festival, more than 480,000 tourists hit the beach for the three-day festival. The 362 tons....yes, TONS...of trash they left behind created one of the biggest, and smelliest, messes ever seen on the beach. The collection of pictures here tells the story.

Snoozing On The Beach

...and probably having nightmares! I don't even want to THINK about the amount of bacteria and fungal infections just waiting to happen to anyone exposing their skin to that filth.

Don't Look Behind You!

I wonder if these people even noticed the sink hole / trash pit / refuse burial ground behind them.
Don't look behind you!

Invasion Of The Sun Mats

It looks like a good portion of this garbage is those little sun mats people lay on while toasting their buns in the sun. I guess no one told them they're supposed to take those things with them when they leave.

Should We Call C.S.I.?

I'm assuming this is just an enthusiastic beach goer having a nap, and not a really bad job of trying to bury the body.
Should we call C.S.I.?

Sorry, Man....

...but romance is not happening in the middle of all this garbage!
Sorry, man....
If I had any thoughts toward vacationing on a nice beach in China, I think I can safely say that it isn't going to happen. Maybe I'll check out Hawaii.
