Ocean Flotsam Art

While heading south from Dillon Beach along Cliff Street, we spotted a small sculpture garden in someone's front yard. The few dozen figures are made from floats and plastic junk that has washed up on the otherwise beautiful beach across the street. Some sculptures wear hats, glasses, pandemic masks. There's no parking intended for art seekers, so just slow down your car, roll down your window, and appreciate a creative solution for turning lemons into lemonade.
