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!
