A kind reminder from a local resident. Broom, that invasive, highly flammable, sneeze-inducing yellow bush, is seeding out. If you haven’t done so, now is a very good time to yank it out or cut it to the ground.
With the onset of tourist season please remember our frontline heroes are burnt out and to know what is coming must be very tough to take. Please, as we have this small, calm interlude, be kind, and show your thanks and support to those who have been here for us through this pandemic.
Have a great weekend, everyone. Be safe, take it slow, respect and appreciate our precious paradise. Contact me with your news at email@example.com for the Friday edition of the Coast Reporter.
