By pure chance Mrs PP managed to get a glimpse of the sail training ship STS Leeuwin II out in the bay on our way back from school pick-up today. So, off we went to the lookout to check it out.
Though a fair way out by the islands it was nice to watch the Leeuwin in action with the sails up and the fresh sea breeze in our faces. Amazing. This trip is a youth voyage where they learn skills such as setting and furling the sails, climbing the masts and working aloft as well as standing watch while sailing through the night.
Meanwhile, the last couple of mornings has seen more heavy haulage trucks slinking past the house around 6 am to dump massive boulders on the foreshore for the sea wall construction.
Late last year and earlier this year, the work was done closer to the Surf Life-saving Club. Now it is focussed on Ellen Cove and the Boardwalk.
