Down Under Summer!

Recommended Posts

notorious_benny

G'day guys, I hope winter isn't getting my northern hemisphere brothers and sisters down too bad ......

Just to wet your appetite for summer I thought I would share a few photos of Blowering Dam, Australia from last week.

We had 6 glorious days on the 25km by 5 km wide lake, temps over 30 degrees C every day, and glassy water almost as far as the eye can see every morning :) :) :)

Happy boating:)!

Yep, the 'I' was taken, they wouldn't accept a '1', so '7' it was!!

And the old boat is a 1968 model Aussie seacraft, it has a 186ci inline 6 Holden engine with no clutch, no tranny!! ...... She is a sweetie, everyone loves to have a ski with Cindy!!

So jealous! The water looks great.

Cindy looks like a great old boat. 3-4 months to go for good weather in Illinois and Indiana.

Blowering looks pretty good Benny, and best of all not busy. What's the water temp like?, we've still got about 27deg.c up this way (Central West NSW)

Water temp was about 22-24 degs, very comfortable temp. The bu seemed to think it was 28 degrees ....... I think its a bit optimistic!

Where do you ride Flamingturbo? I am from near Griffith.

From Orange, ride at Mookerawa, Wyangala, and occasionally The Hawkesbury, off to Mookerawa tomorrow for a day trip, weather permitting. Another couple of weeks and will be staring to get a bit cool, Easter is usually our last run.

Looks great but where is Blowering Dam? I'm a Queenslander and not familiar with it. We used to ski some of the dams outside Brisbane but water levels were always an issue but understand from the family this is no longer a concern. It certainly does not appear to be a concern at Blowering Dam!!

It's in the snowy mountains. Near the town of Tumut.

Punch Blowering into google earth and u will find it.
