Bondi used to be one huge sand dune in the 1800’s. The mega dune used to extend from the beach all the way back to Rose Bay. Check out this photograph in 1875 if you don’t believe me. Well…over the past 48 hours nature has been trying to return Bondi to it’s original condition. The whole town has been sand blasted and dunes set up all along the front in the car park. It’s pretty amazing. That wind and rain is pretty amazing. Thankfully as I write this (1:38pm) it seems the raging storm has dropped a few gears. It’s safe to go outside…now…but wow…what crazy storm.
The swell is rogue but no where as big as yesterday. Sydney Harbour is still ‘breaking’ but really it’s just a novelty and something interesting to do on these rainy days. When the ocean cleans up there is going to be fun waves around town. All these sand movements has gotta form something interesting for us.
