A Sandy Beach Almanac

You've landed at Sandy Beach, NSW, Australia: Lat. -30.15331, Long. 153.19960, UT +10:00 – local map & zoom Google map. I live in a cabin on this beach, 25 kilometres north of the traffic and shops of Coffs Harbour, 600 km north of Sydney. My intention is to post observations of Nature and life within 1 km (1,000 paces) of my South Pacific home.

Sandy Beach 'development' proposal

I should read the local paper more often. Local (not local enough) council has put a Development Control Plan on exhibition, which I'll visit in Coffs Harbour soon. Hands up, those who have ever seen 'development' improve an environment.

I'll be interested to see how financial interests -- and those are what drive development -- will try to convince the rest of us that by doubling the population of a small coastal village in a few short years, life will be improved for human beings and other living and non-living things of beauty.
