scattered trash. But, it did add up at the end of the trip.
We had to pass lots of trash in the marsh grasses in the
last half mile of the trip. It was 3:30. All this trash is very
visible and should be removed. This needs to be done at
high wind tide time to get at it. The water is shallow and
the wind and waves have pushed the trash back into the
marshes. It is ugly and destroys the beauty of this lovely
setting in the New Bern harbor on the Trent.
The trash today was the usual beer cans and bottles plus
two tires, a very large boat seat cushion in good condition,
Jim’s jet engine, and the usual styrofoam and other plastics.
Our participants today were Jim Morris from Morehead City,
Bill Murray from PIne Knoll Shores, Ed Gruca and Rancine
Popkin from Emerald Isle, Harry Paterson from Jacksonville
and Elmer Eddy from Tenton.
Thank you Ed for the wonderful pictures. Elmer
