Sudbury River - Little Farms Rd. to Power Lines & Back

This mid-morning, while the sun was still shining, I launched my boat into the  Sudbury River at Little Farms Rd. in Framingham and headed downriver.   Before I reached the old stone bridge, the clouds had begun moving in and by the time I took the photo at left, the sky had darkened considerably.  It was a quick transition!
Trash was plentiful in the one-mile section of river I patrolled. A little ways past the Allen H. Morgan Avian Study area I turned around and while paddling upstream this osprey flew overhead...
A small group of wood ducks kept moving downstream each time I approached them.
By the time I returned to Little Farms Road, a good haul of trash had accumulated both topside and below deck...
Then the catch of 127 pieces was spread out alongside my boat...
This pile consisted of 67 recyclable containers (21 redeemable) and 60 pieces of miscellaneous rubbish such as 2 inflatable rafts, a boogie board, large block of styrofoam flotation, nip bottles, plastic bags, etc.  YTD total stands at 5323.

Anonymous, Sorry to hear about your accident. It's too late for the rafts as both were punctured when found. The tackle box most likely rests on the riverbottom.
