Flashback to the weekend. Certainly doesn't look like that today. Getting smashed by what can only be described as a winter storm in the middle of summer. How's these stats! Cape Naturaliste has recorded a wind gust to 104 kilometres this morning. Cape Leeuwin has had 57mm of rain since last night 😱. Back to normal summer operating conditions and pretty photos by tomorrow 👍.
Scored this bit of sky drama thisavro as the Surf Life Saving Rescue Helicopter patrolled the coast into stormy skies. Big respect to these fellas for never chucking up. We see that helicopter take an absolute wind buffeting on some days as it flies by. The boys should be thankful they wont be in a boat tomorrow though. HUGE swell forecasts of 5metres+ 🤮.
And suddenly all the beautiful beach photos stopped 😳. The MRDCo Landrover looking rather insignificant against a stormy landscape today. Looks like we are in for a pounding storm tonight. Lots of rain and wind and storm surges with huge swell over the next 24 hours. Stay safe. Go clean the gutters 👍.
Nice little bit of sky colour over the landscape last night.
Surfers Point starting to sound like a meeting of the European Union (minus the UK 🙄 ) as all the Euro kiters and windsurfers descend on West Oz for our legendary summer sea breezes. Hola, Bonjour, Hallo, Guten tag, Ciao, Hei, Hallå to all of you and welcome to WA! Wishing you all an epic summer season. And you arms still in their sockets at the end or it.
Looked like a scene outa the 1970's today with all the longboards in Gnarabup bay. Some thumpers coming through and even bigger swell forecast for Wednesday👊.
I reckon you can look at this image a couple of different ways. Overrun with people. Or a bunch of very happy crew out enjoying nature instead of shopping or sitting in front of the TV. On one of the hottest beach days of the year. To the whingers, just go hundred metres around the corner if you want a spot to yourself. Or better still go find the spots on the Cape Track that are equally awesome and 100% all yours for the day. I truly believe if we want people to care for nature and the outdoor environment we have to have them connecting with it. ...... just remember to respect the location, pick up your rubbish and no pooping in the bushes.
We have over 150kms of coastline in the Margaret River region. I've lived here for 16 years and it still amazes me when i discover a sneaky bay, beach or cove I havent found before. This one was a cracker. All I'll say is that it's the north end of the Cape 👍
This is my mate Tony. We went for a swim at the Natural Spa at Wyadup this morning. Lets's just say it was kinda busy. Tony doesn't do busy. He's a tropical island kinda guy. So we opted for a hundred metres the other way. That's not posed. Not set up. It's just 100 metres the other way 👍.
Could there be a better spot to be on a stinker? And I count a total of six people 😎.
The Natural Spa working its magic on a very warm 35c day in Margaret River 👍.
Perfect weekend for a bit of nature play with the family!
