Although the beach looks tired it has an abundance of vegetation on it and some interesting holes and patterns from creatures (crabs) digging in the sand.
I've no idea what these plants are called, some of them had long tendrils reaching out 10ft, others had red flowers and were with grasses or succulents.
They are currently building a canal that joins the Creek to the sea, about a mile from our house, which will travel through a 14 lane highway and 2 x 4 lane roads which are currently being elevated and half of Safa Park has been lost to the development. There is a man made island under construction and hotels being built.
Some care is being taken of the environment and shrubs are being planted on the rocks, but I'm concerned about what will happen to the natural vegetation and the wildlife. There is so much rubbish washed up on the beach from boats and a huge problem with the turtles suffering from the pollution.
Is there a beach in the world without seagulls on it?
I have some interesting finds on the beach this week, a toy elephant, a couple of starbucks cups, full tissue packets, unopened fruit juice cans, 10kg bags of garlic and a sand dollar.
