Newcastle in the news
The sleepy university town of Newcastle that I love so much became headlines recently when Australia experienced a series of storms and flashfloods in the NSW region. A coal tanker was pushed ashore by the huge waves. Even in this setting, the sight of the 'monster' moored so close to the shores was so picturesque and surreal at the same time. To think that this stretch of beach was where I used to swim! Man if only I was still there when this happened. It could be a wonderful piece of inspiration for me.
