The Cold Front Cometh

A cold front moving in on Port Elizabeth. I just love this weather - the icy cold winds the magnificent bank of clouds and the beach all to myself.

Don't be fooled by the calm looking sea. The swells are expected to get between 5 and 6 metre. No one will be fishing from Brighton Pier tonight. See The Moods of Algoa Bay.
The waves are already lapping the pier.

The fishing area off the sea wall with Port Elizabeth harbour in the background. The warning sign testifies to the fact that more that one careless fisherman has probably zappped himself on the overhead lines, on his way to catch the "big one".

Just down the tracks a homeless family have made the their home under the buffer stop (bumper) at the end of the railway tracks. At times like this we can really count our blessings.
