ricketts point


Beaumaris Foreshore Reserve between Reserve Road and Burgess Street, 7 March 2007

 

Click on the photo for a zoomable high resolution version. The longest finger of the rocky shore
platform here is Ricketts Point.


Note the triangular white marker at its extremity, which was the southern one of a ‘measured nautical
mile’ pair of markers
formerly used by the Royal Australian Navy for accurately measuring the speed
of its ships.
The other member of that pair is the inverted white triangle that can be viewed by
zooming into the high resolution version near the left of the large Life Saving
building with the
curved white roof.


Note the large concrete drain at the left, and the two large buses dominating the scene.
