    Stab in the dark...maybe building new platform so disabled folk don't have to go on the sand and the new loungers are for them?

    I'm with McQueen, it looks a bit near high water mark this walkway... I'm sure someone's looked at the spring tide tables. Vince of course, being a nautical man will know these by heart...

    Yeah apparently making it bigger for the disabled.

    Now if you were really bored you should have been watching the Los Cris harbour webcam and watching the wine festival.

    Oooh! They've took the safety flag pole down now, the one that tells you if it's safe to swim or not. This is better than "Gone With The Wind"!

    Haha! They've put the flag pole back up again, probably realised they would need it for the public in the morning!
