Beach sweepers extraodinaire
Bottle Cove is cleaner once again, thanks to the work put in by students and staff of St. James All-Grade School in Lark Harbour. In what has become a bit of an annual tradition, kids were treated to a barbecue lunch in exchange for their efforts to sweep across the scenic and popular beach in the outer Bay of Islands. The students picked up whatever trash and debris they could gather during the nearly three hours they spent at the beach.
