two waves

It was discombobulating: we crested Eric Street in Cott this afternoon, prepared for a clear view of the beautiful island...

...but it looked like Port Hedland circa 1977, when a strike meant the iron ore ships were heaving to and hoving off out to sea.

Most disappointing. Maybe it also looked like what the Nazis saw at Normandy before they had to start scurrying back to Berlin. There seemed to be a lot of ships out there.

We're sure our crappy phone pic doesn't do it justice, but here it is anyway.

The swim gets ever closer: don't forget about the Great Two Wave Directive And Reminder...

'In 2010, the WAtoday.com.au solos will leave in two waves. First, all female solo swimmers and some of the male solos will enter the swim channel. In the next wave, the remaining male solos will leave. Next are the Channel Ten duos and then the Hahn Super Dry teams will set off in waves of about 100 every 15 minutes. The Lavan Legal Charity Challenge Teams must go with their age category wave.'
