Whether by pure nature, or with human assistance, the river today has broken through its own loop and is flowing more directly out to sea.
At around noon (low tide) there was a break that from the cliff by the vehicle entrance looked to be a couple of metres across.
By sunset at around 5 pm it seemed to have widened a little.
High tide today was around 6 pm — 3 metres.
The river loop is still in place, but it’ll be interesting to see how things shape up over the next few days. The Horowhenua District Council is scheduled to do an official cut on Thursday 28 June 2018.
It was also a very pretty sunset …
