Jon Eiselin wrote in with a query on the the tidal pool at Brighton Beach:
Searching the internet to find some background information on the tidal pool at Brighton Beach near Cave Rock for a blog, I came across your e-address.
So this is why I’m writing you, to ask whether you might know more about this beautiful spot, which I last visited in 2008.
The questions I have are:
When was the pool commissioned, by whom, who built it, when, why at that specific location (when there was a stinky whaling factory just around the corner), its size, was it named after anyone in particular, would you perhaps have a picture of the pool in its days of glory or any other remarkable facts?
Any answers or further recommendations will be appreciated.
Anyone who can help with a picture or details is welcome to contact me direct or leave a comment below. I wonder if the pool was the result of a public works project (amphitheatre for e.g.) built during the depression?
