Finally got out on the water Christmas day 2017. It was a blast. I have to admit that a jet boat not a Jet Ski. So I'll have to take some time getting use to it. I launched at Maximo and headed toward Gulfport. Then I came back and headed toward the first bridge to the Skyway. Saw some dolphins as always . This was not a trash run, but I am happy to say that I did not see any either.
Just want to say thank you to The Jet Ski Repair Shop who sold me the Ski and how awesome that have been.
Today I took my dog for walk at Gulfport. We walked the small area at the shore. I was absolutely appalled at all the trash that I saw on the ground. Cans, plastic wrappers, Styrofoam cups, and worst of all cigarette butts. How hard is it to walk 5 to 10 feet to a garbage can and cigarette butt collector? Next week I will try to get out there with my bucket and grabber and try to do more than today. Maybe my friends will join me for this beach cleanup.
Here is an article by Channel 10 about a group I am associated with.

Happy belated Fourth of July. I decided to do my patriotic duty and hit the water. I picked up a lot of trash. In Bayou Harbor there is a little finger that has some business such as a dry dock, restaurant, boat rental and so forth. This finger was a mess. There was even a 2x6x4 floating in the water with nails. I got a lot of the trash but not the 2x6. I did ask the guys running the dry dock to warn people. I also saw the Coast Guard doing exterior painting on one of the ships. Check out the pictures.
