Default BOO, you've been washed out.

Cruising the beach from Coral Bay to Oyster Bridge. Maybe 10km pretty straight forward quite soft sand. Big swell and high tide meant tricky high line in a couple of places. Didn't want to drop onto the wet, but had too. Turns out this wasn't a good spot to drop, and should have turned harder sooner! Was a steady dig until the water lapped the wheel, then sand tracks and gun it out of there!

Good job getting out! I am writing this from a beach, not planned, so we are in the TB, which is not set up for offroad--and tires are at 37psi. But it is a very short distance and the sand is not deep.
