Day 24 of my #GBSpringClean at Pentewan with Surfers Against Sewageand James Mustoe. It was very cold and windy and James had postponed the event but turned out anyway just in case any mad people showed up. I’m pleased to say there were at least 6 of us prepared to take the extreme weather challenge!
The strong easterly winds had driven a lot of litter on shore and it was everywhere along the beach. Larger objects today, bottles, jars, a ships lifebuoy, fishing crate, hubcap as well as a lot of fishing litter both pieces of net and plastic string.
It was a real challenge to get items into the sack as the wind was whisking them away and taking photos juggling all the gear and gloves was time consuming!
It was interesting to have such a wide ranging collection of noteworthy problem items in one clean ranging from a cellophane bouquet minus the flowers, a balloon and plastic ribbon and a 4 Can plastic holder.
An hour was enough today and I was so pleased to be back home in the warm with a hot cup of coffee to thaw me out ☕️
