The hardest thing to see is what is in front of your eyes.


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".

Ewwww.

The days before refined sewage management.

That's a crap joke, Roddy.

And that canal used to look so appealing on the roadmaps I had when I was a kid. Reality somewhat different.
