After the storms

The recent stormy, winter weather has meant that our poodle walks have been mostly along the back country roads since they offer some protection from the wind. We have only infrequently walked along the coastline because it is usually windswept: battered by the south-westerly winds and intense rain.

The picture below is from one of the rare occasions during July that we ventured onto Rosetta Head. We waited in the Subaru Forester for the squalls to pass through, then we went for our walk around Rosetta Head keeping an eye on the incoming squalls coming from the south.

Whilst we were waiting in the Subaru for the squalls to pass I took some photos of the landscape through the windscreen of the Forester.

When we did walk along the rocks we had to be careful the surging sea at high tide:

Often we had to move quickly away from the edge of the foreshore due to the large rogue waves surging all around us. It was dangerous walking along the rocks with the pounding seas of the southern ocean. There were no walkers, surfers or fishermen around the southern coast—only people in their cars looking at the storms.
