Looks like it would be hard to take, Silver.

But I guess someone's got to do it ...

I did the pics and post in a bit of a hurry and will edit it later so it makes more sense.
Yeah, it's a hard life here. From my hangout it would take me 5 mins at the most to walk to the Tathra wharf in the pic...probably about the same from home, to walk down to the start of the beach...my work is about 1.5klms away and the boat ramp about 3.2klms from home.
I keep my camera in my fishing bag and have to remember to put it in the car as i missed some great shots earlier in the week just north of Merimbula.

While i was up in Bega on Monday they opened the mouth of the river as the road was flooding so i missed it.
Anyway i had taken a better pic of the mouth when it was closed and went down on Tuesday and took another one.
Before..


After..


Nice bird...i think it is some kind of Petrel.

Default Tathra Fires!

@silver

Are you still living in Tathra? Hope you are OK, looks bad down there!

Thanks for remembering. Long time since I posted.
I still live there. Love the place. Never enjoyed living anywhere better.
I didn't know anything about it as I was about 1 hour from getting off the boat at Devonport, Tassie. I'm down here for 3 weeks and now back at the library in Devonport doing stuff. Apparently it's pretty bad. The place I live is OK but I've heard the school has gone and the petrol station also...they are only 100mtrs away.
My mates house could well be gone as a house only 2 doors down was on fire when he left. There are a few people that are not yet accounted for and I reckon the golf club and caravan park I stayed in would have to be burnt.
Pretty devastating for a little place.
I think the Tathra pub has also be destroyed. The new fellow only just finished spending well over $1 mill restoring it and it was going well.
The fire turned back and was heading to Bermagui which means heaps of places would not stand a chance.
I'm just about to check out the latest news.

Oh no - not the pub! These fires just have no respect at all :-(

At this stage I really don't know. My mate reckons the school has gone but my landlady told me the school is OK and she has family in the RFS. I think it is all just a big mass of confusion at the moment.

Yes, I heard on the news that the school is OK; thankfully no one reported as missing so far!
