Pei Yan observed that the yellow bouy was now further inshore and no longer upright at low tide. This meant a drastic change in the layout of the blue drums on the intertidal reef flat.

I am wondering why the blue drums at Sentosa have to be laid out onto the intertidal reef flat, all the way to the rocky shore at the high water mark?
At Pasir Ris, there is a similar row of floating blue drums and they are laid out parallel to the shore in deeper water. Here, there are no blue drums lining up on the intertidal flats toward the high water mark. We can even see the line of blue drums at Pasir Ris on Google Earth.

Hopefully, something can be done before the natural shores at Sentosa are damaged by the blue drums. Here's some views of the natural shore on Sentosa before the blue drums were laid out on it.
