This is the 'basin' which flows out into the Atlantic Ocean. As you can see, the beach is very busy.This is a bridge which crosses from one section of the beach to the other. The current flows from a basin into the ocean, hence the name, Basin Head. The young people and some 'older' people like to jump off the bridge into the water which then takes you out into the ocean or the basin, whichever way the current is flowing that day. The sand is so pretty and wonderful underfoot. It is also very dry. Someone had dug two very deep holes, about three feet down, and there was no sign of water!
Off in the distance is a ferry which takes you to the Magdalene Islands. Our beautiful Island is surrounded by beaches all the way around! The sand on the south shore is a different colour than the sand on the north shore.
These guys were busy building a sand castle. It is hard to see, but there was a crab right in the middle of it.A bit closer...... Can you see the crab? Boys will be boys!! I oughtta know!The sky was bright blue the day we were down there and this guy was playing with his wind surfer.
