Litter pick on way to work

There was a partly wet and dirty empty blue plastic bag slightly blowing in the breeze on the towpath this morning. I thought I spotted the moorhens lingering around before they jumped in the canal on my approach. So I couldn't not pick it up! As I walked on I spotted another blue bag full of empty tin cans and two white carrier bags full of what looked like someone's general waste from home! I didn't look as I know well enough not to pry when litter picking - the less you see the better sometimes! But I peeked some broken egg shells and the smell was awful : ( Carried them all the way to the bin at the end of the towpath stinking as I went! Being a litter picker is not for the faint hearted and mostly I worry about the judgement of others - I passed a lovely couple with their 3 big fluffly gentle dogs which I would normally have said hi to and petted if they let me/wanted to be pet but I couldn't. I carried on and disposed of the smelly dirty litter but I wondered what they thought of me as I did so and smelling rather rotten! In any case I'm glad they are in the bin! It just baffles me how or why people can be bothered to carry their rubbish with them all the way to a place and just dump it...one day I'm hoping those same people learn to carry their bag all the way to a bin! Until then, let's just keep picking : )
