Another day, another beach. This time, Roches Beach in Lauderdale, looking out over Frederick Henry Bay. What I thought was an old pier or boat ramp of some sort, was in fact once an old slipway to a canal that carried "night soil" from the residents homes down to the beach.
Yes, the Lauderdale canal was once all about "night soil".
