Fortrose: Part Four

While wandering along the beach from the old jetty piles to the road, we’d had a good look at the upper foreshore area with its piles of driftwood, pretty water-worn pebbles and shells, bits of pink seaweed, and various human interventions – some nice and some not so nice.

Tomorrow I’ll share photos from our walk along the road after leaving the beach…

    1. Thanks LD. I was surprised at the quantity of driftwood but I’m guessing a lot would come down the Mataura River when its in flood and into the estuary. The Mataura River is a big, long river – it comes through Gore (where we live).

  1. A wonderful collection of this and that along the beach, Liz! I’m always fascinated by driftwood as I wonder what storm brought it to its current resting place. I was surprised to see what looks like a discharge pipe behind Nigel and the driftwood in such a pristine looking place.
