Day 68 - Thursday 12 July 2012

Eighty Mile Beach

It was 17 degrees when we awoke this morning, but Shock Horror! – clouds in the sky. The forecast maximum for today was 26 degrees, but by about midday it was over 30 degrees in the shade of our awning. A light sea-breeze brought the temperature back down to 28 degrees. We checked out the beach before lunch but the tide was well out and no-one was fishing.

By 3:00 pm there were plenty of people fishing on the beach, so David took his rod and chair down to join the fray. Later on Di came down with some chilled refreshers and we spent a very relaxing couple of hours on the beach – however no fish! Apparently a kayaker paddling up and down the beach behind the surf reported no fish at all – not even bait fish. So it was no wonder everyone left the beach empty handed.

As there were no fish for dinner we settled for chicken Tacos instead, As I write this it is still 20 degrees at 8:00 pm, with the humidity at 79%.
