Our first day was cloudy
but the next morning was bright and perfect for trying out my
new 500mm lens from our balcony. This is the jetty at Port
Hughes, a good 5 miles away.
People walking happy dogs down to the beach for a swim
and the occasional cormorant sitting on the breakwater.
Then the light changed to a lurid yellowish green and
a massive storm blew up with torrential rain , flashing lightning
all across the sky and almost interminable rumble of thunder.
The rain was so thick, you could hardly see the sea.
It left the world newly washed with instant little lakes in every
man made depression to increase the uptake of water for the
support of the struggling coastal vegetation.
As soon as the storm had passes (a few marvellous hours),
the sun peeped out from the clouds and the sea was calm and
perfect for a good evening's fishing and crabbing.
Needless to say, under such circumstances and long walks
along the beach and jetty, I returned wonderfully refreshed.
On Wednesday we are off for our next adventure to the Riverland.
Again I will be out of reach of the internet but would so appreciate any
comments you care to leave.
Have you put up your OUR WORLD post yet? If not, get your skates on!
