Vacation time: surf, sun, sand, and, well, dust & lightning too.

Curious Aussie magpie: 30 deg C and sunny, small surf not worth showing the pics: remember you can see the pics larger if you click on themUp the coast: frothing 15 year olds surfing a protected peak

I finally got some quality surf, even if it was if small

The flooded gums near Buladelah - the same type as the flooring E got recently.
And also the tallest tree in New South Wales is a flooded gum [Eucalyptus grandis] all 72 meters of it [about 240 feet]
Decided surfing wasn't such a good idea right then.

Crimson rosella in flight
Confused kookaburra - not laughing
No color retouching - this is how the dust storm looked from the inside

The sunlight turned blue
Finally the real deal - quality surf - a favorite right hand point break

Me enjoying the conditions.
A few rocks
Nature's surfers
Perfect beach breaks & bowling lefts
