Sudbury River - Rt. 62 to Lee's Bridge and Return
At Clamshell Bank, I encountered a group of of 5 or 6 canoes heading downriver. The canoes were well loaded with gear indicating a band of multi-day travellers. When I reached Brooke Island, my hunch was confirmed upon seeing the dry patches where their weetus had been erected for the previous night.
At Fairhaven Bay, there was not another soul.
This eastern kingbird allowed me to get fairly close...
There were 27 recyclable containers (11 redeemable) and 31 pieces of miscellaneous rubbish such as plastic bags, styrofoam, cardboard packaging, and fishing line spools. My YTD total stands at 2677.
This day started on a sour note when I attempted to start my computer. It was unresponsive and decided to remain that way (a power interruption last night may have been the culprit). This entailed a trip to a local computer emporium and some finagling with wires and computer-speak to, once again, post a report. Tomorrow, computer surgeons will attempt to recover some of what was lost. What's that they say about not missing your water?
