Thirteen TOHG members and friends participated in the Refuge beach cleanup day.  The sun was out but a breeze made it feel cooler than the 50 degrees on the beach.  After meeting in Lot 1 we carpooled further down the refuge road to an area not open to the public to start picking up man-made debris on the beach.  The area we walked through to reach the beach was a former camp in the 50’s for children with polio.  Only a few cement blocks remain now.

When we reached the beach area we split up into small groups with some going north and some south.  We agreed to meet back at our access point after about an hour or so.  There was a considerable pile of trash bags left above the high tide mark that the Refuge crew picked up later.  The group then split up to go different ways with some going to Newburyport for lunch and shopping and others heading to the Clam Box in Ipswich.

When I checked out with the group running the cleanup operation they expressed their  appreciation; and reminded me that they also do another cleanup day in early September and would love to see us come back.
