PhotoHunt 90 - Messy

My entry for this week's theme - Messy

PhotoHunt

Last August this year, typhoons "Chedeng" and "Dodong" hit Central Luzon, Philippines. Right after the typhoons, we went to Subic Bay Freeport Zone to spend a long weekend. We proceeded to the board walk / beach area for a stroll. However, we were surprised to see the unsightly and MESSY condition of the beach. Tons of garbage and debris were washed ashore at the height of the typhoons.

When we returned to Subic a week after, the beach had been cleaned up and was no longer MESSY.

This beach though is not suitable for swimming; and it is not allowed.

It's amazing how much mess a typhoon can create. I bet that was a lot of work to clean up!
