The calm after the storm we didn’t get.

There we were, late Saturday afternoon, copping dire warnings about a massive storm heading our way complete with damaging winds and hail, and watching its approach via the Bureau of Meteorology website. Yike. Okay, so we put the directors chairs inside, wound down the umbrella over the table in the courtyard, and listened to the oncoming thunder as everything got dark enough to justify pouring a couple of glasses of cheap white wine. Except the storm went around Lamb Island. We didn’t even get any rain. But the sunset hitting the big eucalypt beyond our courtyard wall was worth the stress.
