Fewer and fewer people have the desire or ability to climb over a chaos of slippery logs to get to the rocks and sand of this lovely bay.

There is nothing natural about their presence. They are an epitome of how contractors over the years have transformed the forests on the Coast into private profit at public expense.

This mess at the pier and all along the beach is a safety hazard to young and old.

Those with the authority to do so should move them to a booming ground as quickly as possible and tax the industry to recover the costs.
