Concord River Desalting

Any remaining salt crystals from yesterday's outing in Buzzards Bay were soon dissolved by the Concord River this afternoon.  By the time I took the photo at left and was returning back downriver from Saw Mill Brook the salty taste was just a memory.

The Bedford Boat Launch where I'd put-in was found to be very clean and free of trash.

Most of the trash that was encountered today looked as though it had been in the river for awhile.  Fresher more recent trash (with a fishing theme) was found around the abutments of the Rt. 225 bridge connecting the towns of Bedford and Carlisle...

A modest day's catch posed on dry land...
...yet another plastic milk crate and half of a trash barrel lid joined 13 recyclable containers (5 redeemable) and 14 other pieces of miscellaneous rubbish. YTD = 3823
