Figure 3. Eroding southern tip of the Sandy point esker (see Figure 2 for location). The bluff is about 10 m high and eroding at an estimated rate of 0.3 m/yr. The bluff is retreating too fast to support vegetation on its face. Seaward of the high-tide line (dashed line), boulders are covered with attached seaweed.
