Trevor’s weather report does not include sound this week … he is on R & R. However he filed this report from Point Lookout on Minjeribah.
Close Encounters with Stingrays
Well we just had two fantastic days on Minjerribah (North Stradbroke Island). Glen, Sue and I kayaked from Amity Point south towards Wallum Creek on the high tide and got up close to Estuary Stingray in their favourite habitat, clear estuarine water over a sandy bottom. These beautiful creatures have a very efficient propulsion system, scooting off with just a gentle flap of their disk margins. There were thousands of fish in this marine reserve, showing the value of protecting coastal mangroves. As well other friends Jan, Greg and Murray snorkelled along the rock wall from the Amity boat ramp seeing carpet sharks and a range of other sea life.
This coming week we are in for some wind days with strong north north-westerly winds predicted for Wednesday, Sunday and Monday. Temperatures will rise as a result of these warmer winds from central Queensland, with sunny days and maximums around 27 degrees Celsius on Sunday and Monday. Minimum temperatures of about 9 degrees are expected on Friday and Saturday mornings. Best outdoor days should be Friday and Saturday if you wish to avoid the windy days. There is little chance of rain all week.
See ya next week.
