Looks much better above the surface

These 4 lovely ladies were so excited to be in the blog! They thought I was Lainey, so I let them run with it (kidding)

It looks as though we have more rain coming, hopefully not as bad as the recent lot. Here's the Willyweather rain forecast for Manly Beach for the next few days

I recently finished watching the Peter Jackson Beatles documentary. Amazing in a voyeuristic way. Footage of the final concert on the roof. The Fab Four with the equally fab Billy Preston
