It was a dark and stormy week.
There was lots of rain in northern NSW and south-east Queensland. My parents’ house is okay, but some towns near here had to be evacuated and some of the roads were cut off. A couple of people were killed in the floods.
Two weeks ago one of my Irish relatives and her boyfriend stayed with us for a few days. She’s my cousin’s daughter. (At first I thought that made her my second cousin, but she’s actually my 1st cousin once removed. My nephew is her second cousin. Gets confusing!). She and her boyfriend had been doing a working holiday and travelling around Australia.
We went down to Byron Bay for the day. We also had a look at the beach near my parents’ house. It’s a 10-minute walk to a really nice beach. The weather was great.
After my cousin left, the weather got bad. The storms washed away a lot of the sand from the beach. On Friday I went down to the beach and took some photos and a video. The wind was blowing lots of foam in the air.
