Closed To The Sea

Closed To The Sea
Lake Cathie closed off to the sea again over the last couple days.
Taken early this morning as another dust storm was about to engulf the east coast of Australia.

Dust was quite thick around lunchtime here too. Cleared by evening. Now we have some nice chilly southerlies to contend with and 12 degrees tomorrow! Won't be able to do any cleaning up this weekend I guess.
