Recycling - Tohe (90 Mile Beach) Style

Sooner or later out on the Tohe a foolish driver who does not know what they are doing will get their vehicle so stuck that's not possible to get it out.

The above photo shows a car stuck after a turn of the tide.

Within 4 tide turns there will be no sign of the car and I have often wondered what happend to it. I knew sooner or later it would be broken down by mother nature but did not realise to what extent recycling went to out here until we came across this yesterday.

Seems the tyre has been recycled and has become a home for goose barnacles, green alga and crabs. Nice to see that some human rubbish in the ocean can help instead of hinder :D

Living on an old car tyre that would have been from a car stuck and taken by the tide out on the Tohe - 90 Mile Beach.
