February 21 – March 29 on the Coastal Erosion Cam

High tides on 2nd and 3rd of March were quite costly for the dunes. Looks like the new fence that went up on the edge of the Golf Course on the 4th of February may soon be gone too….

South Esk Rocks !

Jasper drawing

Great fun at South Esk Primary, identifying rocks with Fraser and then making water colour drawings with Jean. When asked if he was ready to start painting one pupil said he would just check out where the rock came from with Fraser first. It makes all the difference to how its painted, if it came out of a volcano(probably the best kind of rock when you are 11) or if it came down the river, or if it came from Norway on a boat to make sea defences!

The fence has lost it’s pickets and the posts are far more exposed. Jean would be buried completely and Fraser would be up to his neck if they were suddenly transported back to last October.
