    Nice one Jerry, we were there in august 2014 on a high tide big wave day too...!
    Those photos are somewhere on another outdated sd card taken from another outdated phone.
    I was the fella standing next to you vaping, remember...?

    Ha that day those pics were taken there was a group of young male foreign travellers there at the gap.
    They were standing to the left and lower than someone with any sense would be standing.
    Of course a huge wave comes in and 2 or 3 of them are lucky to be alive , washed them off their feet and all over the place.
    I have no idea how none of them went in ! But they all had a free wash .

    Yeah mate that place goes off on a good day, we were there a couple of weeks ago and it's under construction with a big safety revamp. Almost finished now with new observation decks and railings everywhere, lookin great.
    I love the blow hole up the road on a big swell day, unbelievable how much air gets forced through such a small opening.
    Very dangerous coastline around Albany and Esperance and every where in between but that's what makes it so spectacular and the colour of the water on a nice summer day.

    Lol they are cooking, but it is hotter here in Perth during the day, nut pretty cool at night,
    Having spent most of my life in the UK it is very exciting when the sun shines. I have to admit I miss the excitement of the seasons.
    It is also great to tuck yourself indoors in the winter in front of a roaring log fire. But there are many wonderful things about Australia too.......

    Helen wrote a tweet recently to the effect that people outside Britain should not roll their eyes when Brits complain about 30 degree heat, and that the humidity makes it sooo much worse. As an ex-pat Brit yourself, can you confirm the humidity aspect of the British heat?

    That comment made me pause before shooting back that one night in Sydney when I was waiting for the temp to drop below 40 degrees - it didn't.
    :mad:

    I don't think it gets half as humid as say Queensland. Only before a big thunderstorm, then you get all these crazy flying ants emerging as well.
    Just read on the news Southern England is 33c hottest since 1976. The houses are not built for this sort of weather and all the shops have sold out of fans haha.

    I remember '76, water rationing, old people found dead in their homes, pregnant women losing their babies!

    It was like 2 weeks over 30C and was 34C for a few days in a row!

    We thought the world was ending.....lol
