1 week to go and I'm out of the water so summer for me is over.

C grade. No real run of trade swell, lots of northerlies and for the 1st 6 weeks very poor banks. Preceded by a poor Spring. Hopefully Autumn presents a happier state.

It felt like the start of autumn this morning. Breezy west winds, nip in the air, all it needed was a bit of swell to go with it.

Yeah the mango tree is empty as. In November it looked like a season to remember. I don't think we've eaten a mango from it in 3-wks.

Chillies were quiet too.

If summer was one long spring, does that mean autum will be summer and we have no winter?

El Nino sounds so promising and full of potential too. If only.

I was going to go camping with the cheese and tin lids down on the river this week; I've just seen the forecast. I should pull the pin shouldn't I?

Would just like to know if it's gonna be a little bit or a LOT of rain? Anyone?

Getting a sense of déjà vu here damage.

Ha! You remember. Nice one Boo.

Boo there refering to last year when I went camping in an ECL (ignoring the forecast) and got flooded in at Plomer for 10 days.

Maybe put it to a family vote.
Sounded like an ordeal last year, it might be the last camping trip you ever have if it happens again.

Joys of summer I guess Steve. Once can't have their cake and eat it too.

What size was it down your way this morning and how was the peaky tradewind swell handling the big dawn high tide?

it was three feet on the sets.

buried under the high tide.

banks came to life as the water drained off but the nor-easter ruined it on the points.

wouldv'e been fun at a few backbeaches today but I didn't have the time to hunt.

The story of my last 6 months of living on the goldie, it seems.
