Just followed that link Paul,had no idea that ever existed,is the riverbed you mentioned clearly visible on the beach
Yes Ian, looks much like a shallow gully but with a thin stream of water running through it, the water is fresh in origin, obviously it is going to pick up sand as it traverses the beach and is covered at High but I'd bet it carries a different scent/taste to the sea gullies ('eau de toilet 'Queens Arcade!) and supports different micro organisms which I'd hoped might draw something resembling a fish within range.
One of Mike's past reports features an eel from in front of the Sun Centre at High, maybe it thought the hint of fresh water was the harbour mouth ?????
There's so much more to being out there than catching rockling!
Rhyl's beach has a lot going on when you look closely, have you seen the 6,000 year old tree stumps?
On Sunday we noticed in the damp sand just above the high tide mark several perfectly formed domes of sand a couple of inches across and in lines about 4 feet apart, we had a quick scrape about to try and identify the source but came to no conclusion as to whether it was bivalves, rotting groyne timbers giving off gases or an alien life form!
- according to a documentary I watched tonight Charles Darwin spent 8 years observing barnacles, I've a way to go yet!
Back to the topic of Rhyl's Little Venice - there's a cafe on Wellington Road called Sidoli's
I'm right in saying that the Sidoli's came to Rhyl when real Italians were hired to propel the gondolas.
