At first we had a hard time matching up the photos. Then I remembered that in 'the old days' all cameras came with a fixed 50 mm lens. I just happened to have one for my SLR, and I ran back to the tent to get it. With the 50 mm lens attached the frames became uncannily easy to match up - the frame is virtually the same!
It is amazing to see how much the place has changed in 50 years. I actually think the place is better vegetated and that the landscape is eroding less than it was in 1963. It also looks like the 4000 year-old Old Islander site might still be there - just buried under the sand. Patrick
