Costa Fragata is ready now!

What a difference a few hours of picking up rubbish makes.  The south end of Costa Fragata was such an eyesore before the group of expat volunteers cleaned it up yesterday.  Thanks to Linda, Peter, Nathan, Betania, Janice, Rosi, Marta, Sarah, Holly, Jeanette, Nicky, Cheryl, Gemma, Sarah, Sean, Tony & family, Neal.  The dogs were a bit overenthusiastic but other than that it was a great morning! 

Before : completely covered in plastic bottles and bags and fishing net

After: Nice safe place to nest


  1. You rock! There should be more people willing to do this kind of activities! Thanks

  2. Fantastic! Well done.
