Nick, I think the forums you can't directly reply but you can on the swell net articles.
It's Guysmiley's photo, so could be 13th. Not sure.

There are no snow trips and cheese platters for Collingwood supporters nor Pinot Noir but after today's drubbing a few Melbourne members maybe reassessing why they cancelled this year's booking at Falls Creek.

Whats that vessel doing at Narrowneck Ben?
Whale caught in net ?

Looks like it's a whale though it's swimming around a broad circle so may just be cruising.

That boat is awfully close though, if it's not assisting then it could be inside the regulatory zone.

The barge is approaching gingerly from the south-east. The whale seems to have vanished.

someones got too much time on their hands ;)
My morning ocean cam view was entertained with a dog walking into the picture looking a tad uncomfortable .. wanting to go on the sidewalk but then changing its mind.. then the owner appears with plastic bag and proceeds to pull the poo out of dogs bum. Dog then relieved and happy wags tail and the two of them walk out of the picture , and I'm back looking at ocean again to decide if waves are worth a paddle lol.

Three SUPs and what appears to be a bright orange jetski, enjoying the solitude of First Point Noosa.

The ones in the foreground are. They're sitting wide for a bomb set. Which should push through before Feb 2019.

Yeh I was responding to TS.

You reckon the orange jetski is some kind of kids inflatable?

Just stumbled across this one from a few years back. Somewhat ironic that the copper has double parked in order to book a car for parking illegally.

If you think that is rough Ben a few years ago I pulled out to overtake a 100 limited truck on the freeway, sat on the speed limit of 110, then saw a car coming up in my rear mirror doing at least 160. I pulled in to let him through and he slowed and stared at me ..... Unmarked police car doing 160+ to catch me doing maybe 120!

I know of a bloke that got fined a substantial amount for leaving his car unlocked as he ran inside the newsagents he was parked outside of. This is 7AM in a small country town with a low crime rate.

The same copper fines people for having non rated D shackles on their boat trailers.

Something about the curved quasi-symmetry in this surfcam grab that caught my eye. Not least the full house of street sweepers on a near-flat day at Noosa.
