The sign says: " Welcome to Dicky Beach. Dicky Beach is the only recreational beach in the world to be named after a shipwreck." It goes on about sharp protruding objects and the need to take care, but it's that first sentence that worries me a lot.
Messers Andrew D Short and Brad Farmer in their book "101 Best Australian Beaches" for instance tell us that there are at least fifty beaches in Australia alone named after shipwrecks.
Which version of the truth should we believe. I live here, and I'd like to believe it were true, I really would so perhaps I will cling to the definition of the word "recreational" and pretend that no other beach named after a shipwreck is "recreational". It must be what it feels like to live in the USA and voted for a President in good faith.....
