The overnight rain had eroded the landscape and the run-off down the coastal gullies and drains was significant. The amount of silt / topsoil washed into the sea caused the usually azure blue water to turn a sad murky brown,.. for some 400 - 500 metres out to sea. As we travelled north, we saw numbers of people stopped on the side of the ...
