|The wharf taped off|
And the Island did not miss out being blatted. The wind certainly tried its best to shake us off our perches but it was the King High Tides fuelled by gale force winds that showed us how the strongest wharves can still get damaged. Schoolhouse Bay wharf was o k because it had been rebuilt through last winter but most of Mansion House wharf has had to be closed - tricky getting the crowds of tourists on and off the Island into the park now. But like all storms, elemental, emotional or physical, though real scary at their height are hard to believe they actually happened when they go away and the sun comes out again.
|We look at the debris left behind on the beach and stand in awe|
|The seas are still grumbling a bit out there|
|who would believe yesterday's weather?|
|Holiday time and time to play cricket|
|But the Weekenders are still recovering, tucked away in the bush, only their vehicles say they are here|
