My World Tuesday – 3

 
Visit other  My World Tuesday blogs HERE

Today, MyWorld is taking us to Elliston on the West Coast of Eyre Peninsula in South Australia. Elliston is best known for its fishing and surfing. We were heading up to the cliff top to find a geocache and the first roadsign we saw was this:

When we arrived at the lookout, this is the sign in the carpark:

You can park. You can put rubbish in a bin. You can take photos. You can fish. You cannot however camp, build a fire or litter. You can only walk your dog on a leash. You should however, be aware (or beware) of the natural risks:  

 According to my children the risks are: Cliffs that will move away from you causing you to lose your footing, Monsters that come out of the sea to eat you, Helicopter sharks and the most dangerous of all, the triangle headed black snake known for it’s extreme slipperyness. After all this, we were rewarded with this wonderful view of Waterloo Bay:

 

 And now onto the weather. This photo was taken on Sunday around lunchtime from the same location as the last weeks. During the night, we had quite a lot of thunder and lightnening. The rain sounded heavy on the iron roof, but officially we only got 0.8mm. The view from my hill following the thunderstorm:

Sunday 2nd Nov. Max Temp: 24C, Min Temp: 15C, Rainfall: 0.8mm

Since it is the start of a new month, I can also publish the records for the month of October.
Highest Max:35.5C
Lowest Min:4.5C
Highest Rainfall:0.8mm
Total Rainfall for Month:1.8mm
Days of Rainfall:4
