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.

Spider Alert!
I spotted this creature while walking the dog the other week.
