We received this letter from a local resident, regarding the sudden disappearance of two of the best seats in Lennox Head. It’s difficult to imagine who would do such a thing, but some people clearly have no qualms about going out and taking whatever they want, from wherever they please. For those who are unfamiliar with the location, it is along the coastal track, in the northern section of Pacific Parade, somewhere near Blackboard and Foam.
A few weeks ago, the two lovely weathered beachfront logs that had been a part of the landscape in Lennox Head for decades, disappeared over a couple of days. These logs were a favourite spot for locals to perch and look out to sea. They beat the cold metal seats provided by Council for simplicity and all year round comfort. We often saw groups having small picnics and couples snuggling together, based all around these logs.
Firstly, one was rolled down the slope towards the Parade. The next time we walked through it had gone. Then the other log quickly disappeared too.
I’m assuming there has been a purloining of logs, because the Council, in its commitment to safety, would have filled in the hollows left and removed the supporting stakes.
Therefore, will the log purloiners please return the best seats in Lennox?
