Welcome to the new suburb in town. We now have Cathie Sands.
This used to be a beautiful lake open to the ocean, with fresh green-blue water flowing into it and bringing fish. Alas it is no more.
Thank goodness there was a lot of sand dredged out late last year to build up the ocean beach front. We are left with at least a brown hole, where this clear clean water used to be.
Not inviting for swimmers, and such a shame when we have school holiday makers arriving soon. This wouldn't happen in Port Macquarie Proper, but 20 kms south it's not considered important any more.
