Mullins Beach Washed Out To Sea

Well, after today and probably the rest of the weekend worrying about who is taking up too much of the beach is going to be a moot question for a long while given the heavy swells we are currently experiencing. The following photos taken this afternoon show the beach by the beach bar completely washed out, and the beach bar itself in peril of tumbling into the sea. Click on images to enlarge.

The size of the man on beach in front of the bar gives some indication of the volume of sand that has already been washed away with the lush vegetation that surrounded the beach bar.

A wave crashing into the beach bar. There will be no sundowners this evening.

Waves not big enough for yuh? Wait five minutes.

Railings coming apart on the beach bar.

Struggling to secure the railing with string.
