    Blue Mtn Beach!!
    I will be at Blue Mtn Beach access to clean up my neighborhood beach. Not official location, so I will just bring my own bag & gloves. I noticed today that it needs attention around parking area and of course, the beach itself.

    SO grateful today that we aren't all out cleaning things up with chainsaws from Irma! :wave:
