We keep coming back to Mackie Park here in Maxwelton. Today, it is partly to check on the progress of the new spit and partly as a trail head for our long hike down to Scatchet Head.
I've reported on Maxwelton before (April 2009, March 2007), where the accretion of a sandy spit, and its progressive growth downdrift (to the north), has led to significant changes at the park. The spit has now made the ramp pretty dysfunctional (as a boat ramp, but the kids were loving playing the stream).
