Takithame ? Good Karma seeing the Dolphins . Marine waste.

Plastics and old fishing gear left by Burghead – Hopeman cycle track

The other day I dragged a lot of plastic netting old fishing gear near the cycle track. I had passed it for several years like so many but decided to do something so I dragged it onto the fence. Hoping the “rubbish fairy” will take it away? Nothing happens.

More rubbish.

I had some time to spare and so dragged the rubbish to the main road and took it to the skip today.

On way to skip.

It’s sad as on the way back I stopped for a rest. I saw I sold dolphin on its way to Inverness. Was this my reward for getting rid of some plastic from the sea ? Good Karma I feel.

I wish there was places handy to get rid of marine waste such as plastics. I am lucky and have a wee van to take it to recycling. I told my Grandkids the story yesterday they love Dolphins and the were very happy.

Comments welcome ? Is there any plans to place Marine Recycling nearby?
