Still a few raindrops sparkling from among the gum leaves after last night’s rain. Skies were clearing and the wind coming lightly from the west as the morning got started. The wind is set to swing south this morning and then back to the easterly quarters by this afternoon. Swell was up slightly from yesterday to 1.3 m from the SE at 8 seconds apart. Tide was low at 0445 and will be back to a 1.6 m high at 1110. Should be a mild day too, with a high of 22.
As you can see from the pictures, there is a tiny bit more energy than yesterday, but it’s still too small to draw any interest at the Dee Why end of the beach. Spots with better exposure should be in the knee to waist high range but there’s no real prospect of an improvement until maybe late in the week. So, another morning for alternate forms of exercise.
Have a top old Monday and stay happy!
