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.

See Neanderthals drive over colonies of crabs and frighten sea-birds as though wildlife were the enemy!

Sandy Beach is a beach, not a road. A small proportion of the population spoils it for the rest of us, terrifies and destroys the wildlife and damages the environment. By law, vehicles are not permitted on Sandy Beach (except to launch a boat, which seems fair to me) but Coffs Harbour Council does almost nothing about the growing problem. See The Sandy Beach Wave -- a suggested method of dealing with the problem.

Visit the Sandy Beach Neanderthals slideshow - note the picture of the Neanderthal car and the baby's pram. Worth enlarging.

As it grows, this set will also document other Neanderthal behaviour that almost every Sandysider wants to eradicate, but we haven't quite worked out how (like leaving garbage on the beach).
