PostSubject: Clean up of the Beach   Thu May 24, 2012 3:50 pm

Several of us couldn't stand the trash on the beach any more after 'Irene' dumped all PP garbage on us. So Douglas, who lives in Triton 1, which backs on to the beach, organized a clean up with 6 fishermen. Elena and I, Ann, pitched in. Doug got 60 trash bags and had the men separate the plastic from the wood etc. Elena and I brought the men lunch every day, with a discount from El Portal, and Doug cooked them dinner and kept them supplied with water and coffee. They worked from 6am to 6 pm, so cheerfully even though we told them we couldn't pay them right away and it wouldn't be much.
Today is the last day and now the beach is clean all the way to Miramar and so are the woods behind. Thanks to donations from Claudia , Dan and Maria Sorensen, Alan, Brian, Kathy and Mike Holt we'll be able to pay them something tomorrow. It will help to make up for not being able to fish all week! We are setting up donation boxes so we'll be ready for the next storm! Shows we can do it when we work together.
