3 people went there early today to clean just one small area around the Punt.  After one hour and 10 bag sof litter later we had to leave.  We only cleaned a strip about 200 m long.  It is an awful place some days when it should be place of great beauty.  108 bottles and cans in 1 hour!

3207 Extra Cleans in Port Melbourne
With the frequent on shore winds we get in the spring afternoons, it brings in a lot of plastic film and fragments with the tides.   One member has been down a few times on the evenings to clean up some of the beaches along the high tide line before the plastic gets washed out again.

They say when you're on a good thing, stick to it. Well, we've certainly done that when it comes to the weather. Yes, for the 5 consecutive month, we've had the luxury of a good day. Having said that, I think today was the most overcast day we've had, but 24 of us remained dry as we set up on the Northern end of Frankston's award winning beaches.

Nurdles, plastic fragment and cigarette butts were the biggest offenders today. The children who came along certainly had fun with finding and counting the Nurdles too!

Thanks to the other 23 dedicated members who came along including some new faces as well as our regulars, which is always great to see.

A big thank you also to Rob and Rebecca at Aum Shanti who looked after us with their hospitality as always after the clean. It's such a great atmosphere there!
