Wait a bit wait a bittt… look..

And heey, it’s not every day you see a school of dolphins happily playing among the ferry traffic – right at the middle of the entrance to Circular Quay… !! between the Opera House and the Bridge.   Second time they’ve been there this week.  They obviously like it here.  A whale was there a year or two back.   What a nature wonderland Sydney is!

The Goat’s Surf Forecast

Written by goat on August 7th, 2008

5 Day Outlook for Sydney:  Issued Thursday 7 August 2008:

Cold… and windy for the weekend… with sort of surf for the keen ones who don’t mind cold water too!…

Friday: coming up at South friendly spots, around 2 metres South East.

Saturday: in the 1-2 metre range South.

Sunday: about 1 metre or a bit more South.

Monday: about 2 metres South.

Tuesday: about 2 metres South.

Water temps:

Sydney: 16

Byron: 20

Batemans: 14!

All that from online data…

2 years ago we didn’t have 7 day weather forecasts.

12 years ago we didn’t have online surf forecasts (started here).

40-50 years ago your weather forecast was for the next 24 hours!

Food for thought… on a cold weekend.
