Slept in till arse o'clock this morning. Tired as fuck. Down to the beach for lunch and a gander at the sky.
Faint haze of smoke still visible and there was 2 or 3 choppers hanging about over the Kur-ring-gai and around Woy Woy. The fire started on Monday, long weekend and the start of the bushfire season.
Perfect bloody bushfire weather again today. Dry as a dead dingo's donger and the wind blowing like buggery.
(Barrenjoey Head, Lion Island & Commodore Heights from Umina Beach.)
Map goes from the Central Coast lakes district up past Woy Woy, down past the Ku-ring-gai, Sydney, the Royal National Park and down the South Coast a bit.
Top arrow is the Ku-ring-gai National Park. Fire's still burning there. You can see a bit of smoke today from Umina Beach.
Bottom arrow's the Royal National Park. That fire's out as far as I know.
They both started on the Monday, which was a public holiday, the start of the school holidays and the start of the bushfire season.
Map showing the Ku-ring-gai outlined in green. There was a big fire there in January, at Bobbin Head if I remember right. This one's at West Head.
