Holiday pics

Here are the photos from my holiday. Not a lot went on that was good for taking pictures; no lazy days on the beach, girlfriend smiling in the sunshine, or dolphins and whales with a windswept lighthouse backdrop at Byron Bay. No, it was four days of rain, and one night of 500mm (20 inches) of the stuff.

If I had taken my camera on our walk down the street you could have seen some cars pushing through deep water, but I didn't, so it's just two boring pics of the water level...



This was the front, after the water had subsided a bit. Earlier the sidewalk was not visible, more than half the trailer's wheel across the street was under water, and there was a line of debris a little higher than the last plant on the driveway, where the water must have risen to when the tide came in overnight.








The yard backs onto a golf course whose creek is usually over 20 metres away. Only 5 metres from the back fence is a raised tee. It was the final outpost at about 9.30 am, but within 30 minutes was also inundated. If the debris left hanging from the bridge the next day was anything to go by, the water level on the golf course rose by about 6 feet. Thankfully the rain stopped because the rise to the house, as seen in this pic, was not much more than the tee that had disappeared so quickly.

On the plus side, we got to spend a lot of time inside just lazing about. We went out and saw Mr. and Mrs. Smith one night, stayed in with pizza and Anchorman another night, I read The Da Vinci Code and got to spend four days snuggled with my beautiful girlfriend. All in all, a very enjoyable and relaxing holiday.
