The weather here in Margaret River has been a bit unpredictable since Cyclone Olwyn travelled down the north coast, but finally, a lovely sunny day so we headed over to Surfers Point at Prevelly to enjoy the sunshine.
The thumping waves caused by the cyclone had gone and the usual Mainbreak was back for the enjoyment of the surfers.
Don’t they make it look so easy! Perhaps they are getting ready for the Margaret River Pro for 2015. As part of the world tour this event in April attracts the top male and female surfers.
A little further down the coast at Cape Freycinet the water looked very inviting…..but much to cold for us to swim in!
As usual we saw kangaroos and emu in quite a few paddocks. Since I took these photos a couple of days ago the grass has turned a tinge of green after the rain so I think more signs of autumn are just around the corner.
They aré obviously getting ready for the Pro. And enjoying it!
Yes…not much work being done!
I just love Australian beaches! Is the water cold all year there?
Yes Deb….very chilly even in summer….straight from the Antarctic I think!
Takes me back to the dark ages when my first hubby was surfing! I could always pick him out of the “heads like racing tadpoles” by the way he fell off his board! Ha ha!
You are right there Debbie. The spectators knew who was who out there.
Beautiful scenery there ….my surfing son would love it!
You must come visit us sometime.
Isn’t that Jim coming down the face in the ninth snap from the bottom? Looks like a Taj Burrows move. Is he hanging out at the Yalingup surf cafe a lot Kerry?
More like the 19th hole at the golf club Peter!
