Very cool. Only a little bit left visible but very beautiful at sunset.

Very muddy in rain season. I get stock with my 2WD.

What's left of the steamer SS Gairloch, which ran aground in 1903. The remains of the stern sit on the high tide line, the boiler and parts of the engine are further out and only visible at low tide. A fragile and interesting thing. There are also some tiny but beautiful shells on this beach. I had the whole place to myself and loved it :)
