Big Bitou Burn-off at Budgewoi Beach

Sometime in the afternoon large clouds of smoke appeared on the horizon between Budgewoi and Norah Head. bitou_fire

On Scenic Drive between Budgewoi and Norah Head an area of approx half an acre in the old area measurement was alight as Wyong Shire Council, the local Rural Fire Brigade and probably the Dune Care groups fought the Bitou infestation with fire.

Traffic was congested for a while as it was directed around any dangerous areas. Several times the breeze affected visibility along Scenic Drive although it was all well controlled and safe!

The radio mentioned a scrub fire at Bluehaven this morning. Not a planned burn.


Rubik’s Cube discovered floating in Budgewoi Channel

rubiks A dog-walker discovered a shrunken Rubik’s Cube riding the morning swell in Budgewoi channel this morning. After tying their dog to a tree and leaving a trail of threads torn from their sports attire so they could find the place again they hurried to notify …um, somebody. Finding that nobody cared they got their dog and went home.

We took a photo.

There was no dog walker!
