Wainui Beach

Wainui Beach

Wainui Beach is a piece based on the beach over the road from where we live.  When we first visited the beach it was white sand as far as the eye could see. Then after a huge storm we visited the beach and discovered that it had been striped of sand and was almost unrecognizable. Large platforms of rock emerged from the water, it was hard to believe that they had always been there. Hard to imagine the quantity of sand required to bury them and that had moved in just one night.  Now we are familiar with this regular change in the beach. It makes every trip to the beach something new. Will a new form on the water line be uncovered or will we simply have white sand as far as the eye can see.
