ALSO INTO FAVORITES, Brett. So sorry about the horrible rain and foods!
This really is a beautiful picture. I am very sorry it comes from something sad.

We all care. These can be scary times!

Thankyou everyone for the great comments.I have only ever seen a couple of larger rocks exposed here in over fifteen years but with the big swells and amounts of water leaving the lake the beach is well and truly scoured.Brett
