Tallebudgera Creek - Day 7 - Weather Update

Saturday 4 June 2016

In the 36 hours to 9:00 pm tonight we have had 336 mm of rain. Tallebudgera Creek is a tidal creek open to the sea and a 9 metre swell that has been running from the north east for a couple of days. High tide tonight was at about 8:00 pm and the sea level was expected to be about 40 cm higher than usual because of the East Coast Low affecting local weather. We thought that we would be OK in the Caravan Park, but it was a close run thing as you can see for yourselves.

At least you have "waterfront" access. Hopefully it does not come any closer

Aces,
Was this the peak at about 8pm last night.

The wave in the photo came all the way to the back wall of the annexe and deposited a pile of rubbish on the mat. We had two of these right on high tide at about 8:00 pm. A little of the water came inside the annexe, but not too bad. The slab is an inch or so above the surrounding sand.
