Morning with the Mangroves at The Point

IMGP3552

The Point at low tide is rich with mangroves. This is a protected Nature Reserve and Sanctuary as these waters have dugong,  crabs, sea turtles and many species of fish and molluscs, as well as the mangroves.  The shoreline has changed dramatically in the last 10 years. It was just mud, but now has been washed back to rocks with periodical shore drops during rains and heavy tides, and the mangroves stand splendid like a medieval forest of mystery at Low tide.

The mangroves have been here for many years. Some are very old indeed. The roots are exposed at low tide and so are the trees, which at high tide are submerged in the water.

High tide Mangroves
