Glenelg Beach

The first European settlers went ashore at this spot. Now the beach is playground to many beach goers; today there was a schools' beach volleyball competition. The first settlers climbed over the sandhills to the Patawalonga Creek where they pitched tents and erected temporary shelters. They lived there until they were allocated land in Adelaide; 12 km inland. Things have certainly changed in 170 years; the sandhills are gone, but the beach is the same ...... or is it?
