Cape Bridgewater wind farm

View across Bridgewater Bay to the cape (left) and wind farm (centre right)


Wind farms are popping up like mushrooms* around Portland. This one is on farm land at Cape Bridgewater. The blades are driven by the wind off the Southern Ocean, so they don't sit idle for long.

One thing's for sure, those machines are impressive.

I know how the Southern Ocean winds can blow.
