Newcastle, you beauty

on May 2, 2013

This week, I am up in beautiful Newcastle (on the coast, about two hours north of Sydney) doing some work. And although my focus is on work, I wasn’t going to miss the chance to go for a walk this morning – and I happened to catch an amazing sunrise on my way out, then a kinda creepy thick fog rolled in and shrouded my walk back to the hotel. Throw in a gorgeous beach, break wall, busy shipping port, fisherman and lots of hungry pelicans and it was a pretty awesome walk all round. Here are some pics…

Oh, I almost forgot. My day really started at 3.30am, with a crazy loud alarm, followed by two bright fire trucks and evacuated people in their PJs (from the apartment block across the street from the hotel - all ended up ok.)

Nice start to the day for walkers and runners.

So pretty.

Nice view, seagull.

Nice view, giant ship.

And the fog starts rolling in...

Hello? Anyone out there?

Creepy…

Road to nowhere. (Not really, it leads back to the carpark, but felt very spooky this morning.)

  1. Sparks, I have never been to Newcastle, so I love this post. Were you wearing your pinkies?

Enough about me, what do YOU think?
