Lusi light at Foxton Beach

At Foxton Beach last Saturday I stayed with friends and waited for the remains of tropical cyclone Lusi to arrive. But, apart from an occasional light shower and a strong, buffeting wind, the only indication that the weather was out of the ordinary was the warmth of the wind. Morning brought more warmth, more wind, no rain, and light like this.

The sort of light that the most luxurious (and expensive) resort trys and fails to recreate. Golden enchantment.

How beautiful.
I haven't heard of Lusi, but I'm glad it passed safely.

EC, that's one thing no amount of money can control, and I'm glad.

RR, we were lucky, but the Pacific, where Lusi formed, suffered far worse.

A strange and eerie place.

Zhoen, I think that's part of its appeal for me.
