During the September equinox very high seas were experienced along our coast. This caused huge tidal surges in both estuaries. Fortunately, no damage was reported and we are proud that the Boesmans jetty, which Chester repaired earlier this year, stood up to the battering.

Sadly, after the high seas, garbage pictured below, was collected on the 24 September on our beautiful Shelly Bay. All of it left by human activity.
What is exceedingly worrying is the nurdle being pointed out in the photo below. Obviously nurdles are still being found on beaches along the coast. Remember the devasting nurdle spill in Durban harbour on the 10th October 2017, article in the December 2017 Newsletter.
