Think Out Loud

Rebroadcast: Stranded

Pete Springer/OPB

As the summer comes to a close, my mind has gone to the beach. To recognize this, and to continue to allow our producers and hosts a chance to work on special projects and series, this week we’ll bring you a rebroadcast of our show about beachcombing.

You can read Emily’s original post about collecting 100 whole sand dollars at the beach here. You can find updated information about SOLV’s Great Oregon Fall Beach Cleanup (which is referenced in the show) here. You can post new comments about what you’ve found at the beach below. Or, like me, you can let your mind go to the coast: pull up a deck chair, sit back, relax, and listen as Bonnie Henderson, th author of Strand: An Odyssey of Pacific Ocean Debris, takes us on a trip along her favorite mile of the ocean.

And don’t forget to tune in on Friday when we’ll find out what happens at the coast when all the tourists prepare to leave!
