Sumner at high tide

15 October 2021

This was taken at Sumner at high tide. There had been some bad weather that had washed tree trunks and limbs up into the beach. Some one turned this debris in to a house on the beach. I don't know how long it has been there before I saw it, but it was in use. It was the last Saturday before school went back. Good weather and the beach was popular.
