I had an early lunch as it gets dark so soon these days, leaving “Harry Potter” and his invisibility cloak happy in their work.
We reckon Monster’s Best Day Ever will be when it snows and then the world will finally be his ie, he will be invisible. His biggest regret is that everyone can see him from over a mile away.
So it was my turn for the car and I set off to the opposite side of the island where I remembered from ages back a particularly good place to see spectacular waves if the wind is blowing from a southerly direction.
Although not the perfect rolling waves, I was not disappointed.
I had been here a few years’ back during a bad gale and the waves were wonderful and dramatic, rolling and crashing their way inshore. Sadly I was with folk who definitely did not understand the shout of “stop the car, I need to take photos” so we drove away while I vowed to return another time.
Since then I have been waiting for the right day.
But the wind had to be in the right direction and today it almost was.
Anyway, I enjoyed my little drive out.
The “locals” were out too.
And then I drove back to the “sunny Westside” where I live. It was much calmer, although the gale has not let up all day.
It makes a nice change to see other parts of the islands and I am very aware I don’t travel about much. I ought to get out more.
