Picture of a view out to sea between two rocks and some sandy beach on a breezy dayAt the southern end of Saligo Bay, next to where Saligo River runs into the Atlantic, is a rocky area with small sandy patches mixed in. It’s fun to explore, providing many different views. Here’s a view out to where the waves from the Atlantic meet with the water from Saligo River. Taken on a breezy day in April 2017.
