Wave power

The storm front fluctuates in intensity, and the waves continue to pound in.  The power of the southerly swell is revealed by the amount of debris dumped over the road and footpath along the south coast between Island Bay and Owhiro Bay.  Traffic was disrupted, but City Council workers quickly cleared the road of the kelp and other seaweed, driftwood and rocks.   

The debris being cleared.

The culprits - looking quite innocent really.  And a glimpse of snow covered mountains across the Cook Strait in the South Island.
