i dunno. looking at the 4-day synoptic, looks like that high squeezes the low's fetch too directly south for us...

shearer's headland will be cooking but so will the sweep.

I heard it was no good but the sand movement has been advantageous, outrageously so, for elsewhere. it was nice to do a sweep of the old haunts, with my son and touch terra firma again. Looks like a little bit of tradewind gurgle ahead.

Careful Steve, remember the last time. I doubt you have barely got the stitches out your back yet.
