Went over to Waihi Beach this morning. A very nice day weather wise. Not too hot. A calm windless beach day. The tide was going out when we got there just on mid day. Did a search south along the beach edge. Not much to be found there.
It was a fairly clean beach rubbish wise except for the large amount of dog shit everywhere. The locals obviously do not treat their beach with much respect, if they cannot pick up the dogs shit as they walk along the beach above the high tide mark.
I found a rusty old file, bottle caps, a beer can, numerous bits of wire and a tent pin.
