I took the bottom photo in 2007 and you see here that the boats can come around the seawall and straight into the harbour. Shortly after this shot was taken in 2007/8 design and construction of a boardwalk began, to join up the North side of the Marina where the boat ramps are located to the South side where the permanent pens plus restaurants, cafes, shops and much more are situated. The Bascule Bridge (Bascule bridge) or the 'drawbridge' as I like to call it.. much more romantic..castle's moats etc... was incorporated to allow the yachts that are berthed in the inner harbour to pass through. It has been a highly successful development linking the two sides of the marina into a hugely popular venue for both locals (moi!!) and tourists alike.....!
