17th June – Ngarunui beach

Just a short stroll along the beach on a grey day, as I had nothing better to do and needed some fresh air!
It was only a 30min walk from the Lifeguard Hut to the Bush Reserve track but with 3 sets of hands we ended up with a lot of rubbish!

9th May 2014 – Ngarunui Beach, Raglan.

 

After a lovely long run across the fields and forest that surrounds the beach I walked back along the strandline to see what plastic and other rubbish I could find. It was a beautiful warm autumn day and the tide was mid-rising! It is about 3kms along the beach and took me about 40mins.

This is what I found:
