Report Details

Beach continues to be very clean...no bottles, no cans, no styrofoam!!!  Found only 10 or 12 items of plastic, an empty sand bag, and about 10 feet of crab ring rope that I was able to untangle from sticks ,branches, and dried seaweed. It’s likely to be a different story after the summer crowds arrive.
