Snowbanks on Basin Head beach

Last Monday I went for a walk at Basin Head beach, which was covered in strange snowbanks that were crumbling at the surf’s edge. In most places this wall of snow was no more then knee high, while in other places it rose well above my head. A curious scene I must say, but very scenic too:2017-02-27__09-49-15

In one place I was able to crawl underneath a piece of snow to photograph the icicles dripping down:

About halfway up the beach, I saw this small shipwreck in the surf, it was about 10 metres long and I hadn’t seen it before. By the looks of it it wasn’t much more than wood and a rusty engine:

Next time I’m at this beach I’ll be sure to look if it’s still there!
