Vehicles on the beach, March 2022

One car stuck in water and another hopes to jump start it.

The beach is a risky proposition for vehicles. In the last couple of weeks two stuck cars have been towed out by helpful locals. The drowned car from the photo above is still sitting on the side of the road in the village.

Meanwhile the entrance off Manga Pirau Street is very variable. At the start of the week it was badly gouged out and rutted. By 24-Mar-22 it was somewhat smoothed out.

In addition, the Beware Soft Sand sign seems to have disappeared, as has the newer bilingual sign advising folks they are entering private property.
