An excerpt from a letter to Cleanwater:

"As a visitor to your country I'm constanty awe-struck by its beauty. I have travelled right the way from West to East and have rarely been unimpressed with the view. Even on the streets in the cities including Sydney it is quite rare to see an excess of rubbish and litter. This remained true until recently when I moved into an Apartment at Rosebay and saw part of that beach. The beach as viewed from the road is imaculate but unfortunatly further along the beach hidden by development is ruined with litter.

Myself and my friends have often spent time picking up large items of litter and trying even in just a small way to tidy up. We do however need to work like everybody else and with the little free time we have at present we use to see as much as possible of your country."
