MANNING Point resident, Brian Shoesmith rang the Times about an unusual phenomenon at Harrington.

A horseshoe-shaped sand bar had formed off Harrington. In a happy coincidence, Taree businessmen and photographers, Ashley Cleaver and Alan Small were taking a flight around the area and photographed the sand bar.

Mr Shoesmith, who has lived at Manning Point all his life, had never seen a sand bar form in the shape of a horseshoe at this point.

The Harrington entrance sand bar has reached the gantry. Mr Shoesmith said he has seen this happen about four times in his lifetime.
