A few years ago, like maybe 6,000, the Awaswas people played croquet on this beach during low tide. The Sokel and Chatu-mu had a huge rivalry. This all started when George, from the Chatu-mu village was hitting rocks and punched a wicked hole in the jetty. From that point on, the hole was referred to as a wicket and the object was to hit rocks through the wicket. Over time, the wicket grew in size until it was pretty easy to hit rocks through it. Well, eventually, one of the Sokel tribe suggested that they move their game to a grassy area because they were limited as to when they could play due to the tides.
The above story is fictitious except for the part about George knocking a hole in the jetty.
