St Clair Poles - sand level changes over a decade.



Found and old pic in the album I just scanned, (now I've worked out how to scan straight into photoshop).. of the height of the pier piles november 1996 compared to august 2006,
and the white arrow points to the same pole in each picture. Since then even more sand has gone. Anyone keen to guess how much sand has gone? . hint the guy is 6ft 1 . and ha ha, thats me on the left in matching stone wash denim jacket and jeans

it'll be interesting to see what the sand bank modification they were talking about in the odt on saturday will do, maybe they should just dump all of the sand at st clair, as they said it'll drift north anyway
