We arrived around noon, but the rain was intense so we waited about an hour. By then the rain had stopped and the clouds gave way to sunshine. Due to recent storms, there was a lot of trash along our mile. Plastic pieces, fishing rope, broken toolbox, large amounts of plastic bottles. We did a through cleanup, hauling away several trash bags. Finished right as the rain started again. Many large and small logs had been deposited along the shoreline.
