Bondi 7am – ankle to knee high,

Yeeeaah…but naaa…Swell has come up today – a whole 12 inches.
So instead of flatness, we’ve got little ripples. Forget surfing
– hit the snow. How cold is it? This chunk of air from Antarctica
is freezing our corner of Australia. Victoria has some of the heaviest
snow falls since 1951. Even snowing on some beaches along Great
Ocean Road! Max 15 today, Fresh to strong west to southwest winds,
moderating later.

Swell in Sydney will come up tomorrow afternoon and
Saturday is looking like some joy. Dust of the steamer – you’re
gonna need it.

Exhibition 12th – 16th August
The ‘Wonder’ exhibition and subsequent auction, to be held at Australia
Council for the Arts, will showcase a number of Australian Iconic
and Emerging Artists and Photographers, who have donated pieces
that express their ‘Wonder’. 100% of the money raised from the Art
auction will go directly to the Girls On Top Cause for 2005 – Gudrun
Sperrer’s Amazon Animal Orphanage. AUCTION – TUESDAY 16TH AUGUST,
Australia Council for the Arts, 372 Elizabeth St. Surry Hills. 6pm-9pm.

If you’ve got a lazy Iridium Satellite Phone and Data kit lying
around, I’d be keen to borrow it for 2 weeks (early Sept) on my
next Indonesian expedition so I can send bumps reports from very
remote areas. Contact
