The falling tide had the barge depart with the boys pushing the craft into deeper water. The mangroves close to the Punt Bridge were then cleaned, with two full bags coming out. The old timber vessel beneath this bridge appears to be being demolished by the owner.
Across from the Punt Bridge boat ramp another two bags were filled with most of the litter in the rear sections close to the sporting fields. Further up the creek coloured plastic balls were collected in excess of 100. These had been dumped into the water.
With a good load in the barge and the weather getting worse, a return to base at St Edward’s was made.
