Well we have been promised thunderstorms on a dozen occasions and the worst we have had is a rainy afternoon at Sydney. Today appeared to be the same when we woke to blue skies. We headed for the beach from 10-2pm where it was red hot. The sea was warm too. Went back to the villa for lunch.and All of a sudden it clouded over and then it all kicked off ( as seen by the picture from my balcony window), Fork and sheet lightening , thunder and torrential rain like i have never seen in 20 years. By 7.30 it had moved out to sea, so we headed out to the bar followed by a restaurant obver looking the beach. You could still see the storm lighting up the sky over the ocean. Man has no reply to mother nature that is for sure.Back to brisbane tomorrow.
