At Stingray Bay

Though the weather pleasant enough for a June Winter's day
The sun behind the gray clouds is hidden away
Above Stingray Bay the pale silver gulls call
Where the huge white waves crash against the breakwater wall
The weather is often breezy on the side of cool
But Winter is never cold in Warrnambool
On this southern Winter Solstice a weather temperature high for the day of sixteen degrees
With a certain freshness in the coastal breeze
On this the shortest day of the southern year
The warbling of the magpies so pleasant to hear
On the concrete pathway by the beach people walk, jog cycle or run
Everyone has their own way of having some fun
In this beautiful place by the City of Warrnambool
On the southern Winter Solstice day slightly breezy and cool.
