Sun was shining, the weather was sweet, made us want to move our TT feet.. Haha but really, the weather was super nice and we knew Mother Nature is always stoked when we lend her a helping hand. So The Crew made our way back to 44th street this Tuesday afternoon and continued where we had left off last week.
Upon first glance it didn’t look like this session wasn’t going to be filled with nearly as much sunken treasure as last week. However, any bit of uncertainty we originally had was laid to rest as soon as we got closer to the water and glimmering objects in all shapes and sizes caught our eyes.
We still can’t seem to pinpoint exactly why it happens. But for some reason every time we get involved with a Treasure Tuesdays beach cleanup, some strange pattern or trend of sunken treasure emerges like clockwork. Without even so much as a shadow of a doubt, this week’s strange treasure trend was endless amounts of water bottle caps and take out food containers. It was honestly disturbing to see just how many of these things were left behind in addition to the usual assortment of straws, plastic bags, food wrappers and other oddities.
So as we cruised down the beach collecting as much sunken treasure as we could from the sand in Newport. We couldn’t help but wonder how the Treasure Tuesdays session was going for our buddies up north. We were recently contacted by a group called TEAM C.H.A.N.C.E. who told us they really dig what we do each Tuesday, and were going to be starting their own Treasure Tuesdays group up in Sacramento. This is what TEAM C.H.A.N.C.E. member John had to say,
“I hope all is well. I wanted to send you a brief email on the AWESOME experience TEAM C.H.A.N.C.E. had today. Today in Sacramento we had our 1st (but def. not last) Treasure Tuesday. What a great experience both for my team to be part of something special & to come closer outside of the office. I attached a few photos of our day including: a picture of the type of treasure we found. Our youngest participant at Treasure Tuesday ( what a great opportunity to help teach to give back at such a young age). A pic of the river we helped clean up and a pic of the trail after we got done cleaning it. Again thank you for the inspiration. Today something you started in Southern California made a community better over 350 miles away. Keep Changing the World.”
It would be hard to put into words how stoked we were to hear this from the people at TEAM C.H.A.N.C.E. so we’ll just put it as simply as possible and say- Thank You for getting involved and helping out give back to your local community.
Here are a few photos of what went down on the beaches of Newport this Treasure Tuesdays.
And here are a few photos of what was happening up in Sacramento (350 miles north of Newport) at the same time!
