It wasn’t that long ago that Perth was surrounded by bushfires – or at least it felt that way. The sky was overcast with smoke.
And yet I still didn’t “get it” when I saw the sign until I was well past it on my morning walk.
Which is why I took this next photo:
I wanted to see what the lifeguards thought smokey surf looked like.
Turns out they were just being witty.
Good luck for those of you in the extreme fire danger zones this weekend.
