It is not often that two beacons in Stilbaai are as open and ‘exposed’ like this past weekend (14 – 16 July 2018).
Friday the 13th July was New Moon with Spring Tide on Saturday / Sunday which means the water was extremely high with high tide and very low during low tide.
The monument, or referred to as ‘The Steentjie‘ by locals, at the west beach (close to the harbour) was completely open while the Preekstoel on the far east also had no water around it.
