The magic happened thanks to the owner of the coconut grove getting a trench dug across his farm and connecting it to the inlet near the entrance. He may have done it to prevent water logging in his farm but the result? Voila! The inlet near the entrance which had remained obstinately dry all these days turned into a mini waterfall!
A few more days of rain, a couple of more inlets connected to a storm water drain .... greed is bad but not in this case. :-)
