Showing how the Breakwater protects the river/canal outlet - giving a calf area from the waves.

Standing at "Compass Point" looking down on Summerlease Beach, The Breakwater (built by the Victorians to give a safe haven from The Atlantic.   On the horixon you may see some small white structures - no, they don't exist, ask either the UK or the USA governments !!!! -
