Hats off to the Texas General Land Office and all the volunteers that picked up tons of trash on Texas beaches this past weekend, what an outstanding job you did! Along with the typical paper trash, empty bottles and cans, cigarette butts and other common items, the volunteers always find some rather unusual items. I'm sure you've walked along the beach and saw something unusual and thought "what in the world is that doing here?" Here's a list of the strangest things found on Texas beaches during the spring cleanup.
