De dogged the wife's Rolla interior
Driving my Kombi down the beach and watching the monster swell and some very skilled surfers having a ball.
Up early, drive to Bayview, walk to Church Point and back, brew coffee in the Syncro and sit in the sun watching the morning activities.
Setting the scene for a good Sunday.
I have never seen Newport with a meter and half drop off from the end of the short walk from the car park to the beach after last weekends big swell !!
Up for an early this morning with No.2 son & his fiancee....
Fun, little loggin' waves with few folks about..home by 10:00, nice breakfast together before they pack to fly back to the Netherlands tomorrow.
12 weeks has gone very quickly !!
Hey Kazz, I can remember sitting under the roots of the Norfolk Island pines at Newport reef in the '70s. A huge NE swell had scoured the beach of sand and provide these weird shelters from the sun.
Great waves at the reef that day...... We all had our little "spots" that we'd hang in........until the old fella washed the sand back in. .......never seen it like that since.
Sitting under the roots of the Norfolk Pines, Whoa !!!
I line my spot up with a Norfolk just north of “Plus’ Platform.....as you say our own “spots”
Gotta Love It !
Took the bay for a drive down to South Head.
Went for a walk with Stan ( aka Nut Case ) and Lea. took the binoculars and saw some dolphins frolicking in the water.
Love driving a grotty bay around Double Bay
Pulled up to the coffee cafe and a couple of young cyclists we usually see on a Sunday were there as they decided to wag work and ride ..... they are car nuts and knew I had Reschs and so had to check him out and take photos to send to the chat group of others in the group - one of them has a Polo GTI and another trying to get his wife to buy him an Golf R .
Today’s walk and brewed coffee in the syncro made me happy today. Guess where we are.......
Bawley or Racecourse ? - South Coast....
Much closer to home
