After melting away in the scorching desert heat all weekend we were stoked to return home and find that the weather was just the right temp. Since we’d been missing the beach a bit, the Crew decided to partake in a casual lil’ beach cleanup this Tuesday afternoon in the usual Treasure Tuesdays fashion.
Once things were all wrapped up at HQ for the day we ventured down to good old 52nd street and took the beach by storm with bags in hand and eyes ready to scour the shore. The warm sand, toasty cosmic rays, and cool breeze brought huge smiles to our faces and we couldn’t help but feel like summer has already fallen upon us.
What was even better than the nice weather, is that from the looks of things… we’re about to start getting some fun swell over the next few days! Which is always a nice little added bonus when the swell is up and we’re able to watch the waves while hunting for sunken treasure and tidying up the beach.
While cruising north towards Huntington, we happened upon quite a few peculiar finds this week. The amount of kid-sized sandals that littered the shore was unbelievable and seriously threw us for a bit of a loop seeing as how we didn’t find a single sandal larger than a size 4 (Weird… we know). In addition to the numerous tiny sandals discovered along the way, a shotgun shell, rubber surgical glove, plastic Easter egg (looks like someone was a week early), and enough water bottle caps to fill a Vinchee Pack to the brim were also salvaged. Ark captain Kev even found himself a sweet white wig which he chose to rock for a bit!
Upon reaching the tower at 61st street, our bags began to bulge at the seams which let us know our Treasure Tuesdays efforts this week had been a success. After a quick victory lap around the tower and a pit stop to deposit our treasure satchels in the trash can: we declared victory and trekked back southward.
We hope you can join us next week for another epic Treasure Tuesdays session. But until then, peep a few photos from this week’s cleanup!
Sandals for days…
