Weeds, weeds, weeds. We hacked, shoveled, dug, pulled weeds by the hand, raked, sweated … and … we ensured we didn’t take or pull flowers and native plants. But there was a lot of dead stuff, some trash, but a lot of work was needed to make the place less of an eye-sore and more of an inviting place for OBceans. One guy came by and said he weekly toured the site and picked up trash.
We left a huge pile. Two city workers showed up at one point and said they would take the pile. No TV crews showed, no politician showed to take credit. Just OBceans and their friends and hard work in the blazing sun on a beautiful day.
And thanks to everyone. Thanks to Mindy and DogBeach DogWash for the tools, thanks to Brenda for the tent and water, thanks to Chris, Patty, Colleen, Kip, Mike, Genie, Larry, Hugh, Eric, Pat, and Bob and his dog Bonnie.
