“The Pacific is my home ocean; I knew it first, grew up on its shore, collected marine animals along the coast. I know its moods, its color, its nature. It was very far inland that I caught the first smell of the Pacific. When one has been long at sea, the smell of land reaches far out to greet one. And the same it true when one has been long inland.”
John Steinbeck

She is a beautiful ocean, even when the sun cannot come out and play.  I am so sad that she is considered by some to be nothing more than a landfill for garbage.  The thought makes my heart break.  We cannot afford to lose this resource and all the creatures and plants that live in her.  Thank you for listening!!
