NOAA Photo Library Image - line4836

Dillon Beach. The remains of a beautiful blonde doll wash ashore in an affluent beach town. Her frozen expression seems startled, her eyes wide open. Where did she come from? A passing ship? - a child's toy lost in the surf? Did she wash down a stream from somewhere inland? Our seas are becoming awash in plastic from many sources.
