This was yesterday :
There was a brief spell when the grey light lifted and the sun came out, and so did the onlookers, thrilled by the spectacle. We were all confined to the marram grass covered dunes at the top of the beach. The waves and foam were running right in amongst the plants, and it was just too silly to try and walk along the sand.
However, with all this water flying around, the bodyboarders couldn't resist those waves.
As I sit here, watching out of the window, the waves seem to be getting bigger! I've moved the car to the next street back, just in case!And as the sun goes down on a ferociously turbulent sea, all is quiet in the harbour, in the lee of the prevailing wind. I have seen one or two surfers being thrown around by the humungous waves this afternoon, and apparently tomorrow the surf is expected to be better, so I might not have finished with the waves just yet this weekend!
