Everyone knows it's windy...

Tempting fate on the Victoria breakwater...
Tempting fate on the lower steps of the Victoria breakwater...
When the winds off the Victoria waterfront get strong and start kicking up white caps, a favourite activity of locals is to walk the Ogden Point breakwater, (2). When the waves hit the rock wall hard enough to crash over the top level you know you've got a storm on your hands.

If you're brave -- or stupid -- you can walk the outer lower level of rocks like the fellow in the photo above.

The downside is getting caught in white wash. Like the same fellow in the photo below. Can you see him?

A faceful of white wash...
I hope that camera was waterproof!
