News from the windy city

No, not Chicago, Geraldton… Western Australia.

It is windy, raining and surprisingly warm all at the same time. I look out of my window and see the artist’s representation of the Merry-Go-Round by the Sea as depicted in Randolph Stow’s famous autobiography. It’s a dangerous thing which is why the kids love it. There have been children on it all day.

The earth is dry though. Dry as dry can be. The rain this morning pooling on it’s non-wetting surface as if now that it’s waited so long for life giving moisture the sand rejects it in a pique.

We plan to go camping on the beach tonight. Hmmm could be interesting.
