Nature: a place where birds fly around uncooked. – Oscar Wilde
Today I made the most of a beautiful day and went out in my friend Sasha’s kayak around Yerrabin Island off Wellington Point. I rounded the island to find a small fishing boat starting to lay a long net in a circle, probably after mullet or bait fish. Just behind the boat was a line of pelicans. When they saw me, they turned and came over for a free feed but I had nothing to offer. So they turned and started following the fishing boat again. It was a nice encounter with nature!
Well things are warming up this week with some above average 25 degree maximum temperatures expected on Thu and Fri. These temperatures are associated with strong north-north-westerly winds ahead of the trough line moving across the State from the west. These winds are picking up heat from central Queensland and the tropics and moving the heat south-south-east over our region. There’s a small to medium chance of rain as the trough passes over the South-east. Temperatures will fall after the trough has passed and winds swing to the south-west. Wednesday, Sunday and Monday are looking like the best days to enjoy the outdoors.
See ya next week. Trev the Weatherman
