In response to yesterdays post of the beach at Maitlands River mouth, Richie requested some views of the dune and surroundings. Here it is from the beach, and in the foreground is the lagoon formed when the river mouth when it is closed by sandbars. The pipeline that feeds water to Port Elizabeth from the Churchill Dam is seen crossing the river. The little building to the right is a rather tatty ablution block on the edge of the carpark. It is a magical place for kids to run wild!
And by the way, thanks very much to Sonia, who found a way of getting back to decent sized photos after Blogger messed with the sizing, and we were stuck with horrid little ones for a while!
