M a g I c a l  M e n t o n e  Beach.
Is this an #oldpier ?
Is this an old #groyne ?
I grew up in Mentone and commute past the area most days.
I think this may be the most photographed piece of old weathered timber in #mentone.
I think it is magical for me as it reminds me of beautiful days spent at the beach in all seasons.
Today it's still special , as the background is always changing while creation gives us something new everyday.

You know something's up when two helicopters are hovering and the surf life saving boat comes racing to some surfers.... 😳 There have been so many sharks sightings in the last few weeks plus many fatal and near fatal incidents, it's beginning to really shake up the community and keep people out of the water, something I'd never imagined happening in Lennox. They've always been there, they always will and so will humans in the oceans, be it swimming or surfing the risk will never 100% disappear. I'm interested to hear the scientific theories behind the increased sightings and incidents in recent times so we can best understand how to protect those that choose to spend time  the water. Sharks behavioural patterns are clearly changing, why is that?
