Image Caption: is a much closer, more nearly-vertical view of
disappointment Reach and surroundings. Ripple-like patterns extending
at right angles to the tidal flow can be discerned on shoals. Relict
sand dune patterns, crests unvegetated, are evident on the western
side of the estuary. Red mud brought down the Mooramel River on the
east side of the esturary does extend into the shallow water of the
intertidal lagoons. Most of the light-colored water along the coast,
though, represents shoals of lime sediment. Patterns of sediment
distribution by tides, waves, streams, and wind combine to create a
complex and colorful scene.
