Low tides have been lower than usual recently. When we were walking along the south end of Perth’s Cottesloe beach a few days back, the old submarine telegraph cables were clearly visible in the shallows.

The first of these cables was completed in 1901 and connected Perth with the rest of the world. They are looking a bit the worse for wear these days.
