It was a very typical north coast winters day, . Sunshine blues skies, scattered cloud and a cool westerly wind. It’s beach break season again. The westerlies make for some pretty bumpy waves in the bay. So it’s time to check out the ocean side, spread out and go look for your own private sandbank, because they are out there, you just got to go and look. Now of course the big news is the Tsunami that didn’t come. There was a big 7.9 on the Richter scale undersea quake off the south island of New Zealand last night. The quake triggered abnormal water movement, which triggered the Tsunami sensors. Now some folks have been going on today that the sensors don’t work, but there was a Tsunami, just not a very big one. It registered off Tassie and Port Kembla. The sensors picked it up and predicted it, sending out the warnings. Like I said yesterday, I don’t pay too much attention to weather forecasts, but I do take note of warnings. If it turns out to be a non event, then I reckon gratitude is a whole lot better than grumbling about it. Bottom line is it’s nice to know we’re being looked after. Because there’s one thing I know for sure, after a life time in and by the sea, I’ve learnt you can never have too much respect for the ocean and its unpredictable weather patterns. Huey can sure turn on the beauty, but the old salt’s got a wild temper too. So have fun and enjoy but also take care, don’t make the mistake of thinking you have power out there, .
To all those wonderful folks who chose to pose, we’d just like to say. Thank you for being here with us.
