Bridge of Flotsam
The bridge of flotsam was encountered yesterday about 3.7 miles upstream from the Oxbow Boat Launch in Harvard, MA. I'd paddled upriver in an attempt to reach a previous downriver turnaround spot. My gps showed the desired spot being another quarter mile beyond this obstacle. It was only with the help of high water levels that I'd been able to make it this far upriver. All of my previous attempts fell short.
The line from "Jaws" came to mind... "You're gonna need a bigger boat". Dealing with this much trash would require many hands and a truck for hauling it away.
Me and my way-too-small boat returned downriver passing the small stone chapel...
Brought to mind Mr. McGuire's one word of advice to a freshly graduated Benjamin... "plastics".
