Coastal springs

There are a lot of fresh water springs that originate along the Wildside coast of Port Elizabeth. All along the coast at places like Willows, Schoenmakerskop, Kini Bay and Seaview and in between you would find fresh water seeping through the rocks and running down to the sea. Its normally easy to spot these little streams as you would find reeds growing next to them or the pools they collect in. Also where they run down past the rocks green algae grow on the rocks. Another example taken and explained by Luc Hosten on the Friends of Schoenmakerskop page on Facebook.
