The overfall in Miles Inlet.

5 years ago, i didnt get a chance to really watch this overfall, its quite amazing, when the tide is very low, as it was that day, there is a big reef, which totally blocks off the little inlet beyond, but then, slowly, as the water comes up, it starts filling up, and after 30 minutes or so, it runs very hard, a two sided waterfall is created, then it totally covers the whole reef, like nothing was there in the first place, fascinating to watch!!
