This morning was bright and sunny, time for a bimble to the Botanic Garden toward Cannonvale Beach. Well worth looking on the net for Shelf Clouds barrelling over Sydney and dumping the most extreme weather. First, a look at a huge piece of coral along the way from Beez.

Looking left from our entrance, along the arcade of shops to the restaurant at the end, there we turned right to go to the market yesterday.

The plan, we are heading off the picture to the left. Bear’s trigger finger went into action when he saw this propeller at the back of the boatyard.

From here we could see to the far side of the marina and look down on the jet skis.

The marina foreshore, not a soul in the water, but then, there are jellyfish warnings........

We watched a couple of mates fishing as a heron kept his beady eye on them.

This is a picture of Mr. Paul Darrouzet, the billionaire mining magnate who bought the marina for an undisclosed sum in 2013. Speaking to folk along the way, the improvements and facilities are way different to before.
