Big Tuesday at Manly

Ex-cyclone Oswald brought some big swells to Sydney beaches today. Manly was looking pretty messy early this morning after last night’s storm, with a torrent of dirty brown run-off spewing out of Queenscliff lagoon into the sea. South Manly offered some decent waves for those who were game. Here’s a few photos I took this afternoon.

Wow. The wild weather that has caused so much devastation in Queensland arrived in Sydney today. Ex-tropical cyclone Oswald drenched the city and churned up the surf. I’ve battened down the hatches and hope that my ageing window frames survive the storm. The boys went for a sail on Sydney Harbour this morning before the weather turned really ugly.
