It’s less than a brilliant idea to be out n about tonight.

Winds are gusting increasingly noisily through trees and around building, the first wheelie bids have taken flight, as the do. By dawn the forecast is winds of 160 kph+ (100 mph +) .

As it’s an equinox the high tide at 08.00 will be ‘interesting’😉😁

Waves are likely to be10 to 12 m (30 to 40 feet) so this will make for some spectacular photography and painting.

“Father hear us when we pray to thee for those in peril on the sea”…
