This channel marker buoy shows boats where the end of Llanina Reef is.
I was out on a boat trip looking at dolphins and other marine life when I took the opportunity to snap this.
The guide on the boat said that on a low spring tide the rocks are occasionally visible, and that it is a good place to catch crabs & lobsters. However, it represents a hazard to shipping due to the rocks underneath.
The nearby church at Llanina is purported to be the 17th such building, as it was once built out on this reef when sea levels were lower and less erosion had occurred, but that with every encroaching tide the building had to be taken down and moved back up the shore. I imagine that an early christian church would have been made of wood, and therefore moving it every 50 years was a darn sight easier.
