Port Aransas held its First Annual Trash Dash yesterday. Although a brief downpour made everything wet, it did not dampen the enthusiasm of the participants
Here is a shot of the registration table. All participants got a T-shirt and a collection bag. The idea is to go out and for one hour collect trash on the beach. The most trash collected wins first prize.
A photo of one of the volunteers Angie Huckabay will give you an idea of the front of the shirt.
The back shows the sponsors and the plea to Keep Texas Beaches Clean.
Here is a mom and her children signing up to participate.
Here is a French Bulldog in the mud and mugging for the camera.
Here is a shot of the trophies. There are awards for the first, second, and third place.
Ready, set, go. And they are off

On the way home, we spotted that the missing sea captain (from Hurricane Harvey) is being replaced. I will bring you an after shot when he is complete.
