On Sunday morning last I spent about 30 minutes seawatching from the
base of the Point Lonsdale lighthouse, Port Phillip Heads, Victoria.
The weather & conditions:  cool, squally showers, moderate swell, slight
SW breeze, relatively small seas to the west, but very rough in The Rip
and to the east.
