C is for Clouds (Or, did someone say “horseshoe vortex”?) #MelaleucaMiscellany

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAA day without clouds, according to Jen Calder, is a “boring weather day”. Whilst this February in Melaleuca had many such boring days, there were also plenty of days with splendid cloud formations.  Here are a few of them.

Was especially pleased to catch this rare horseshoe vortex on my last night, as I rode to Melaleuca South by vintage bike in full Parks vollie uniform, to the sound of an alpenhorn. Had serious suspicions I had somehow stepped into a Wes Anderson film.

Qug and Scamp set off on their Bathurst Harbour circumnavigation! But not before attempting to board our craft to transfer some letters for postage.
