Plastic

by backpackingbongos

You would have thought that by getting as far away as possible from civilisation the more unspoilt the environment would be.  Sadly along our coastal waters this is not the case.  On a trip to the remote west coast of Jura late last year the entire coastline was covered in plastic and general crap.  This consisted anything from fishing crates, plastic bottles, flip-flops, shoes, old rope, more plastic bottles.  Basically if it floats there is a good chance of it turning up on a beach.

Sadly this was the same on Scarba, how the hell does all this end up in the sea?

On the plus side Reuben found a couple of dead footballs to play with.
