    lifes a beach

    About a year ago I collected 6 x 25l containers at Mission Rocks. Those familiar with the area will testify it is quite a formidable task to do this at this beach. Short haul but the first 15m of rocks is a killer. Well 2 guys were sleeping on the rocks at the timeand when I loaded the last...

    My new ATS
