Vetch's after the storm - 2007

Photos showing the condition of Vetch's beach after the storms in 2007 give much food for though, especially if one considers that the swell was from the south, as is visible from the first pic.  Although the basin was well protected extensive damage was done by the strong surge.  

One can only imagine what the damage would have been if the storm swell had come from the north east.
