|The Freshwater/CurlCurl headland, usually you can walk on the submerged parts|
When the clouds broke, I took a walk up the coast with my fellow photography enthusiast, Webs to watch the waves smash up on the rugged headlands.
We saw our ordinary haunts transformed into a maelstrom of pounding waves and driving winds. At some points it was a struggle to just stand still and we had to yell to communicate.
|The water was higher than we have seen it, there is a submerged walkway in here somewhere|
|Chaotic patterns in the water|
|Boom! Waves smashing up on the way to Curl Curl|
|The walkway from Harbord Diggers to Curl Curl|
|Wild waves breaking on the way to Curl Curl|
|Water Draining off the rocks|
As you can see, totally submerged, we wouldn't have stood a chance.
The waves put on quite a show, we were impressed by the number of people out and about, doing what we were doing. Lots of people were walking around, some taking their kids out to view nature's fury. It ended up being a cool way to salvage out cancelled plans and proved once again that the ocean is endlessly entertaining.
