Walk to the Dutchman

Anyone who swims in Myrtleville is used to doing a lap to the Dutchman Rocks.  At high tide, this means you swim over them and see them under you.  Around mid-tide (mind the kelp, James…….), you understand where they get their name as they peek out of the sea, like the Flying Dutchman of pirate fables.  Today, however, you could actually walk from the beach to the rocks.  It’s a 0.2 metre low tide and Bernard got this good shot.  Now you know what’s under you!
