River waterways cruise Surfers

Nyle, Erle and I had a really nice cruise along the river and canals and waterways at Surfers.

 The cruise came with a great sausage sizzle to nibble on as we drifted along the waterways lined with very expensive homes of the rich and famous and a huge Marina full of wonderful yachts

Plenty of money floating here!.

Nyle's camera has a panorama feature, she took this photo.
We were given vauchers to get two for the price of one Churros and Chocolate to dip them in. We had never seen these before and we just loved the new experiance. We ate masses of them and a lot of rich sensational chocolate........ so much that none of us were able to eat any dinner that night

Beach erosion

We were shocked to see how badly the beautiful Surfers beach had been damaged by very high tides, the great crashing waves have eroded a long way into the banks and dunes, even to the extent of damaging some properties that back on to the beach,  and just taken the lovely white sand out to sea. There is now quite a lot of dirty oily looking, black sand where the good sand was washed away. There are now steep banks to climb down to get to the beach. Going to be a huge job to repair the beaches even if it is possible.
