World Ocean Day 2009

What an amazing day we had at the beach yesterday... dozens of volunteers worked for hours to remove all the plastic, glass and fishing net from Costa Fragata with help from our friends in the military. Looking at the beach I felt quite emotional, I have never seen it so clean.... A barbie at Grijinha was our reward - great effort everyone! A few more photos here
