Good morning to stay in the bed. She's blowing 25 knots ESE up at North Head presently and the beach looks a mess. The swells up from the East but it'd be a battle finding a spot with protection today. Maybe see what the wind does the rest of the week and leave the swell to build today. It's the last day of Autumn today and a good day to take a look back on the year so far before we dive into Winter tomorrow. Dont forget, tomorrow night at The Steyne, we're throwing a little shindig with the Rope & Anchor Cafe guys. The Steyne's new fireplace will be throwing some warming light on a wintery collection of Sprout images while Espresso Martini's, hot rums and nibblies warm you from the inside out. Oh, and did I mention Ed Worland will be strumming some hearty tunes from the corner? Yeah, that's right. Throw on your coat, wrap your scaff around your neck and embrace winter with a warm cuddle at The Steyne. RSVP on Facebook now!
