This will be the first of two posts from Maxwelton. Mackie Park lies on the broad foreland south of the old estuary, sandwiched betweeen beach homes. The boat ramp temporarily captures northward drift on its way to Sunlight Beach. Recently, erosion has increased just north of the ramp, possibly due to a rapid buildup of bars (the beginnings of a new spit?) farther south, which may be limiting sediment to this section of beach.
