It began with a normal day at Courageous Sailing Center in Charlestown with the sun blazing its UV rays down on the energetic children eager to get the day started from swimming at the Y to fishing down by the pier with us! We were joined by fellow fisherman who shared their captures with us and allowed the kids to play with the cool crabs they managed to pull out of the sea. As we got started in the afternoon, the tide was lower than usual which came as a surprise to many of the children. The low tide still did not affect their drive to catch their first fish and for some their second or even third! As the the day went on, the tide slowly rose. The children began to notice trash washing up by the pier. It was a sad sight to see this trash floating in our harbor. It takes 500 years for a trash bag to biodegrade in the ocean. If it takes that long for just one bag, imagine two or maybe ten bags! That is 5000 years!
