Happy New Year to you all.
Newcastle put on a nice day for the New Year festivities, with calm, cool weather and a light cloud cover.
The Foreshore was full off families in the parks, eating and enjoying a few drinks.
Newcastle has a 9pm fireworks display so the whole area of the river foreshore was very busy, they have nice restaurants and food stalls for you to partake of, prior to the show.
We have been housesitting at the top , or east end of Newcastle so we could just walk across to the Fort Scratchley park area for a birds eye view, even took the dog who was quite at home with the kids , fireworks didn’t phase him at all. With a nice glass of bubbles and a good crowd we enjoyed the 12 minute show.
Today, New Year’s Day was spent with a leisurely walk along the boardwalk, a couple of swims, then around 4pm we went off to the Nobbys Beach surf club for a $4 Corona and a great hamburger for an early dinner.
