First trip to the beach for this year (and these summer holidays)!

It was very hot, humid and the water was unusually warm, brown (rather than its usual turquoise colour) and the waves were dumping. Even the beach was reshaped quite steeply from recent king tides. You could tell that there has been some strange events lately.

Not the best ever beach morning, but the kids and their friend enjoyed themselves, I got wet and we all had enough after a couple of hours and came back home.

By the evening the storms moved in again and throughout the night it rained heavily at times with an amazing lightning show that made me think of stories of locals whose houses have been hit by lightning in the past… Scary bedtime stories.



On our first car trip out for some time, we drove to Maleny to stock up on school stationery, groceries and visit the library as well as the icecream shop. The day was hot right from the word go and castellanus clouds were promising to build into cumulunimbus sooner rather than later.

There were signs of scarring on hillsides where landslides had taken place, some dangerously close to buildings and Baroon Pocket Dam had changed it’s colour to a muddy brown, full to the brim.

The expected thunderstorm reached us in the afternoon, hardly interrupting the kids water play.
