Henderson Creek, South Beach SP south

This time I concentrated on the area south of Henderson Creek where there is more activity. Photo submitted, & will be the last one. Beach was quite clean and probably because of the beach clean-up activities the previous Saturday.

We usually access the beach via an entry at Surfland which hasn't been easy in the past.
