East Coast Low

As predicted, the East Coast Low hit us this weekend, although thankfully Newcastle seemed to miss the worst of it. The swell and ginormous waves however didn’t! So when the waves are pumping in the harbour, and not outside, its time to head to the coast even if the winds are blowing a gale and the rain is coming down hard.

We headed to ‘usual’ – the ocean baths where if the swells and waves are really pumping the water will be flowing over the edge, and today was no different.

A few of the other crazies had headed to the breakwall to see if the waves were breaking over the end and to catch the harbour surfers, so we headed back to them.
