Looking for a clear spot on the beach

I would like to comment on Harrison Hot Springs beach. This past Sunday my husband and I packed up a lovely picnic to spend the day at Harrison.

I would like to comment on Harrison Hot Springs beach. This past Sunday my husband and I packed up a lovely picnic to spend the day at Harrison. When we arrived and went to find a nice spot on the grass I was so shocked at the repulsive sight. There was duck feces all over the entire grassed area and the sand leading to the water was literally covered in duck feces. You couldn’t let a child walk anywhere in that entire area. Putting down a blanket was totally impossible!

We were so offended by the duck feces surrounding our chair that we couldn’t even find a clear spot to put our picnic basket down, never mind eat around that filth.

Why aren’t they cleaning up this mess? This week is the Arts Festival in Harrison and I would be ashamed if I was the organizer of this event for people to come and see this disgusting mess!
