    Last chance for a quick run offshore before a four day storm is about to hit us hard. The predictions are for 6m seas by tomorrow with heavy rain ( something we haven't seen for a few years ).

    Caugh a few fish for dinner but the weather started to deteriorate, as did my sons seasickness. Rain, thunder, lighting and three waterspouts were a sign to head home, unfortunately it was just as some humpbacks started playing. Still a fun day to be on the water.

    Seas were over 7m yesterday and said to increase a little more today, its now moved on past us up the coast.

    We get around 30000 confirmed whale sightings along this part of the coast each season. The dark sky with bright conditions through a break in the clouds were pretty rare, wish I'd stayed a little longer for a few more shots.

    :) It should churn up the inshore waters and improve the bass fishing! :)

    When I saw the weather chart you posted on Monday I did wonder if that REALLY nasty one out to the SW of Oz was going to track east and then north.

    .........and I've been racking my brains about where Kerry took the picture. (The kayaks look like they are off the Heads outside HMAS WATSON.) I thought I knew just about all the ocean pools for 300 miles north and south of Sydney, from Bermagui to Port Stephens, but for the life of me I can't work out where that picture was taken.
    Please put me out of my misery!

    He lives in the Bondi area and takes pictures locally everyday. I assumed they were from his local area but I'm not overly familiar with the Bondi or any of the busy city beaches. That weather certainly turned on some big swell, the wind wasn't to bad at all for most areas, we didn't seem to get much above 30kt locally but we did get the swell. I had to head to Sydney airport yesterday and my car was covered in seaspray from the airport carpark!!!!..I wished I'd had time to hang around for a few photos but you know what it's like trying to find somewhere to park around those city headlands. The harbour ferries were all stopped.

    Yes, it's funny as most people in the U.K. think the seas are calm and flat all the time because that's what they've seen on tv on a Barrier Reef documentary.
