I may very well! I live on that smaller bay at the bottom of Australia. The one on the right. First rain and cold air for months and we are enjoying it.

Yep, quite blowy. And up here that wind brought us 3 1/4" of rain yesterday afternoon -- the monthly February average in just six hours.

One of these days, Jeff, I want to hear how you tackled the Narrows with the ebb against a wind like that....

Ha! Not in the Canoe Mike! But in say a Gwen or a Cherub with two on trapeze……………..:D

I got caught out off Lang Lang jetty on a falling tide with a big wind change once, but you can walk home from there.
