Watery Wednesday

Last weekend I went into Newcastle, NSW and took a walk along the beachfront. This is a pic of Nobby's Lighthouse.
This is the same stretch of beach that in June 2007 the huge ship Pasha Bulka was blown ashore in a major storm. It took almost a month before the ship was pulled free. As it turned out they had emptied their balast tanks before entering the harbour trying to save time. They were then sitting too high in the water and had not control when the storm blew up.

I spotted this creature while walking the dog the other week.

Ruby Tuesday

I took this a couple of weeks ago. It's even got a little bug on a petal.

Mellow Yellow Monday

While driving along to an appointment this overcast and drizzly morning I came across this yellow slippery dip. I had nothing planned for Mellow Yellow and lucky for me I had the camera handy.

Scenic Sunday

This is a picture of the Story Bridge over the river in Brisbane, Australia. It was taken some years ago on 35mm film so I had to scan it in.

Camera Critters Saturday

Not too far away from my place is a pond with heaps of ducks. As soon as I parked the car they all waddled up to me looking for a feed. After they realised that I was not there to feed them they all went back to the water. When the next car pulled up, out of the water they came again....

This picture of a dolphin was taken at SeaWorld on the Gold Coast, Australia.
