Beach Notes: River Beach

By Suzie Cheel and Des Walsh

River beach

Our beach notes pictures are usually from one of our local surf beaches. This one is different because our car is at the mechanic’s so to have a swim today we had to settle for the little beach here on the river where we live. Tough, we know, but someone has to do it.

Although there is a slight catch. As in, the tides.

We are quite used to being careful with the various currents, undertows and “rips” at the surf beaches, but it was a bit of a surprise to experience in the river how quickly the tide can run and how easy it would be, with the tide running out as it was today, to get carried downstream.

Looks calm though, doesn’t it?
