Mike Harris (Husband of Jenny- Teacher Fellow who showed me around the Catlins) helps manage the waterways for the Regional Council down here. He took me out to the mouth of the Clutha Mata-Au River early evening.
|End of the road! Mouth of the Clutha pouring out into the Pacific Ocean.|
|Sand/ gravel bar being pushed up the coast|
|The sand is very coarse and comes right up- here to a local "Crib" (note the South Island term for a "Batch"!) See the outhouse on the right. There were three other cribs to the left- sea side of this crib that have gone- thanks to mother nature.|
