Rowing for Rubbish

Peter with his paddle board and some of the rubbish he collected in Latham BayLiving besides the Otago Harbour is one of the great pleasures of our lifestyle in Portobello. So boats and floating devices play a major role in our local lifestyle. So two intrepid Portobello Community Inc. members decided to enjoy a harbour paddle combined with a beach clean up in Latham Bay recently.

Peter in Latham BayPeter Dulgar and Davinia Thornley took their stand up paddle craft around two of  pocket beaches in the bay. Another yacht owner Paul Jennings whose boat is moored in the Bay also contributed by cleaning up a 3rd.

Its great to see people being innovative in the way in which they care for our harbour and community. Combining something you do for fun makes it even better, and what a great way to spend the day. Because as the Water Rat declared in the Wind in the Willows “there is nothing — absolutely nothing — half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats.”
