Saving Souls on Sacred Sand?


Convent Beach in Yamba once had a nunnery but it was engulfed by shifting dunes. 
These days the piety and sand have been replaced by very expensive beach houses.
Most days you will find yourself the only person on this tiny beach.

  1. Good that you can at least walk freely on the beach.

  2. I like how you've given us a peek of the beach, through the trees.

  3. Nice photo of a tiny beach, that is free to walk on, as all beaches should be.
    We have a Clarence River valley not too far from where I live in New Zealand too, it is quite isolated, with sheep farms and some cropping, the river is used a lot for white water rafting and canoeing..

  4. That's a feeling I like, being all alone at a beach.

  5. Hi Glennis. I didn't know there was a Clarence River in NZ. I looked on the map and it does look isolated. On the upper reaches of the Clarence (New England) there is lots of sheep farmimg on a tributary of the Clarence, the Nymbodia River, there is also famous White water canoeing.

  6. So is the nunnery still buried under the sand, is it still there?
