The weather was perfect for a clean up of the bay.  It was really amazing to see the amount of trash you could find by just looking a bit deeper in the mangroves.  I believe the final heap was about 50' long, 10' wide and 5-6' high.

Couches, mattresses, tires, toilets, giraffes (?!!), bottles, and more bottles and more bottles.  The recurring theme was they should outlaw the little plastic water bottles - they were everywhere.

I know in my group alone of 2 girls and myself we managed 5 tires, 106 beer bottles, and at least 5 garbage bags full of plastics...

I suspect that this was just a tip of the iceberg, but a journey of a thousand miles starts with the first step.

Congrats to the winners of the $250 gift cards from both Citgo and TA Mahoney.  Winners ranged from the oddest item (TV/car bumpers, giraffes) to largest items (couches, mattresses)...

Thanks to Pig Silly everyone went home well fed and the Bay is just a bit cleaner - everyone present gets to fish guilt free for 2016.

Photos below...before/after, piles...and yours as yours a you see fit.

Not to be outdone I continued my trach clean up in the bay as well...
