There is a lovely beach that stretches miles along the blue Atlantic.
Boyd Alexander, a British officer, further explored the lake, which then contained few stretches of open water.
The west coast throughout its whole length is covered to a depth of some miles with mangrove swamps, with only a few isolated stretches of sandy beach, the dim foliage of the mangroves and the hideous mud flats presenting a depressing spectacle.
The landscape consists for the most part of waste stretches of heath, occasionally slightly overlaid with high fen.
This vast tract, which is only a few dozen feet above the sea, and most probably was covered by the Northern sea during the Post-Pliocene period, stretches from the lowlands.
