Super breeze

Wow in ally my years of being a keen wind observer I have never had an easterly blow like it did yesterday evening. Must have been like that back in the 1902 "great gale" that dumped many ships on the beach at North End.
See a pic of stranded ships at

There are many more in the PE Museum

Trees were pushed over all over the city, gutters & roofs ripped off. I guess if I was in insurance I would get ready for a few hefty payouts.

Algoa Bay was huge yesterday at around 2 pm with a consistent break at the bell buoy but not that rough this morning.
