Here’s a photo, taken at the height of such a weather event.

Blowing in the Wind….

15 Aug

What a windy morning! But no surprise: in Sydney, August always seems to have its share of such conditions.

Along with a handful of others, Chicki and I braved the breezes to have a stroll along the promenade by the river.

A couple of wild ducks huddled on the pontoon; nearly invisible due to their tight compression.

Fewer birds than usual made an appearance. Only a flock of wild cockatoos squawked and glided high.

Nevertheless, for me at least, it became an enjoyable experience.
