In the photo below, you can see the old road cut in the rock midway up the cliff face.

Sea Cliff Bridge
If you click on yesterday's photo to enlarge it, you will see a road/ bridge over the water in the distance. This stretch of road used to be quite dangerous, with reasonably frequent land slips and falling rocks. It led to the road's closure in 2003. In December 2005 this new stretch of road was opened to take the road away from the escarpment face. It includes a walkway / cycleway. Here is the view from the bridge, looking north. The bumpy headland in the distance with the beach below is where yesterday's photo was taken from. You can see an aerial view of the bridge here.
