Front page again, again.. " Sand Shift for Beaches" Otago Daily Times 3rd july 2007

I arrived at St Clair about 3.30 today.. to get a coffee at Starfish.. saw the front page of the ODT there.. and jaw scraping ground took my latte over to listen in on the group of officials discussing the procedure for saving our city from inundation from the sea.. Emergency measures to pump sand from the harbour, store on the wharf, and truck out to middles and throw overe the sausages.. for now.. 2 thirds, to St Kilda will be closed to the public during their operation.
What exaccerbated the situation was the actions of some ****/s who attacked the sand sausages with a knife splitting nearly all of them open and spilling their protective contents onto the beach, which mostly washed away.
I took photos.. walked along to Moana rua road via the beach, and ended up making a video out of them.
