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?

Thans for what you do. so amazing what garbage is out there. Thanks again
A never-ending tide, isn't it? On the flip side, the scenery in so many of your pictures is amazing. That there can be such wilderness even in a densely packed state like MA... well, it's always a refreshing read!
It blows my mind when I go on your site and see all the trash you pick up each time you paddle.
I keep wondering, "How does he manage to haul all that stuff back?!"
I find myself getting hooked. I look at your paddle pics for each post, and I keep wondering, "How much stuff did he get this time!"
I enjoyed my visit here. Your efforts are appreciated.
