Odd Ball

Week 43

~~~~~

 After seeing some surfers in action

last week at Bell’s Beach, Torquay,

I resolved to venture back one windy day.

I did prove I know nothing about surfing this morning.

trees_0009With a northerly(ish) wind whipping across our backyard I set off

and arrived at Torquay about 30 minutes later to find no surfers,

little white caps and to be told the wind was in the wrong direction.

Apparently it was an onshore breeze at Torquay.

The beach is to the left of this shot.

Not hard to guess where the prevailing wind comes from.

    • Must confess Raewyn that it is the first I have seen where trees are showing effects of coastal wind. A few inland acacias had a bit of a list on them from westerlies but nothing in like this in big trees.

    • It’s the first wind blown coastal trees I have seen like this. In my other life…the coastal town/cities I visited had hundreds of Norfolk Pines….straight and tall…planted throughout
