10.30am Christmas Day and Christmas Swim

Happy Christmas all. Swell this morning is 2 foot with a cross/onshore southwesterly force 3 breeze gusting to 4.

And below is the man, Rossnowlagh's only swimmer so far this morning, and swimming today with temperatures of 13C+ is a doddle compared to last year's swim in -6C  temperatures.

11.50am Christmas Eve 2011 - just a bit late today.

My surfer house guest, whose arrival at 11.54 delayed posting of this surf report, says it's a crap day -35 lines of white water and onshore.
As if there could be anything but a good day in Rossnowlagh. The waves are 2 foot with up to 4 foot walls (not white water) at the creek and the breeze is light force 3 southwesterly cross/onshore.
And unseasonably warm. And a new moon.
So Happy Christmas to all who share my  Polyanna happiness syndrome.

9.00am Friday 23 December 2011

Photos are of 9.00am but being uploaded now at 15.50. I got distracted - so easily distracted on these busy Christmas preparation days.
So the pics are just for checking in with Rossnowlagh. Maybe I'll get a proper surf and tide report done on time tommorow. ;-)

Nearly forgot, primroses in bloom down the road from Smugglers Creek. They look as if they've been blooming for a while - well hammered.
