On yesterday morning’s walk, I took advantage of low tide and a dry week to clamber down off the perfectly good footpath and cross on the silty foreshore. I got this nice shot of the old navigation marker or whatever that thing is from a new vantage point, yay!
Quite a lot of the bay is like this… naturally shallow, and silted in even more thanks to 100+ years of logging, farming, and building.
But silty mud is tricky… you’re walking along on slippery but solid ground and then “shloop!” you’re in up to the top of your shoes. Ah, the sacrifices we make for our art.
