We were given a trip on Whale Watch this week. They asked that, in return, we spend some time doing a beach clean up. Last week, we had a day that was so lovely and warm that we decided we would do it then, at Gore Bay. We split up into two groups; three of the boys went one way and the rest of us went the other way. I told them to start back after half an hour and we would meet up near the start. It is amazing, and disgusting, what you find on the beach! Why don’t people pick up after themselves? Most of what we found had been thrown under the bushes at the edge; there were a lot of beer bottles. Yuck! We also found an old tire and some lumber, but the most unusual find was the huge wad of frayed rope that the boys found!
He said he wouldn’t help, since he couldn’t go on Whale Watch, but when we got started he couldn’t resist! After our time cleaning up (and deciding we should do it again in a few weeks), I let the boys play on their “raft” again for awhile. They sure are having fun poling that around the lagoon!
And then, the camera got dipped into the water, so we had to buy a new one in order to take pictures when we went on Whale Watch!
