Sudbury River - Rt. 62 to Heath's Bridge in Concord
Skies were on the gray side and temperatures felt more like late November. Trash was plentiful with most of it being fairly recent. Between Rt. 62 and Heath's Bridge 27 pieces of trash were recovered. The area of the bridge itself required 2 forays onto the beach. One on the downstream side and another upstream. By the time I left the area, my ship's hold was nearly full. The shore fishermen that frequent this spot have become adept at hiding all their refuse in the brambles. Now, with the foliage gone their hide & seek game is over. The day's haul posed in the last hour of DST 2010...
Earlier today, I stopped alongside River Street in Acton to get a photo of these 6 automobile tires that recently appeared on the bank of Fort Pond Brook. I drive past this spot frequently and never noticed these tires before today. Somehow, I doubt the beaver that lives in the lodge behind the tires brought them home to munch on.
