Cruising in Newcastle

17 July 2013: It was so nice to be home and have another beautiful cruise on Newcastle Harbour. Yet again I had 6am start and I‘m so happy that I did as the early morning light refraction was brilliant. It’s so nice to be out on the water and watch the sun pop each day, I’m so lucky to be able to experience it.

6.18am: The Shimmy Sunrise - Newcastle. The light refraction was amazing. This is 40 minutes before the scheduled sunrise.... Unreal!

The guiding lights of Newcastle Foreshore. Also not a bad spot for a fish as well.

I just love the way the pre dawn light dances on the surface.

I'm being guided by the Destiny statue, situated at Walsh Point on the old State Dockyard site. Inspired by the figure heads on the front of sailing ships, she symbolises the spirit of the future, standing on a global sphere and drawing strength from the earth.
