Nobbys Lighthouse - Newcastle by onewing

Nobbys Lighthouse - Newcastle

Been too busy today to take a photo so this is one I took a couple of weeks ago in Newcastle.

It is of Nobby's Lighthouse in Newcastle and you can see the Stockton sand dunes in the distance.

I am posting early because David needs to get on the computer to sort out yet another problem, probably caused during our huge storm a few weeks ago.

Even though we have power surge protectors etc on the computer the storm was so severe it still managed to cause damage to the desktop computer. Yesterday had to get a new modem and now we think that the external hard drive which backs up all our documents etc is corrupt, so David has got to sort that one out tonight. At least it is keeping him off the streets ha ha.

I am a bit behind again with catching up on your photos, but hopefully will be able to catch up tomorrow if we get our computer problems sorted out by then. I just need a couple more hours in a day at the moment.

@hermann Thanks Sally. The Stockton dunes are magnificent and cover about 32 km from Stockton in Newcastle to Anna Bay which is quite close to where I live.

@savannah51 Thanks Sharon. It is amazing how quick the green comes back once we have a couple of days of rain.
April 10th, 2014  
@karlow75 Thanks Kane. The coast line from Stockton to Anna Bay is beautiful.
April 10th, 2014  
Lovely capture! Love the dunes in the background and of course that wonderful lighthouse! I've been to Nobby's Lighthouse before when I was younger and from what I remember it looks as beautiful here as in my memory! :)

This is lovely Babs. I miss Oz, but we will be back there for a holiday in September. (Rocky) Thanks for the follow, am now following back! ;-)
April 10th, 2014  
@sioux Thanks Sue and thanks for the follow. Do you come from Oz. We lived in Bedfordshire for a few years.

@onewing We moved to Oz in 81 when we left Rhodesia. I have been in Bedfordshire now for 5 years. Love both places, I just wish they were closer together!

The Aussies have such a way with words - Nobby's Lighthouse - brilliant name. Super shot too Babs, hope the computer gets sorted soon.
April 10th, 2014  
Sounds as though it was a massive storm Babs...hope you were insured! Loving this beautiful white lighthouse, it's name alone makes me smile. Stunning setting too with those sand dunes in the background!
April 10th, 2014  
Great capture, so beautiful.
April 10th, 2014  
Such a wonderful place Babs. A fav from me.
April 10th, 2014  
What a beautiful shot! I do hope all the computer woes will be sorted out soon.

@lilminimonka Thanks Brianna. I believe it has undergone some sort of restoration in recent years too.
April 10th, 2014  
@pittcj17 Thanks cindy. Lots of photo opportunities in this area.
April 11th, 2014  
@sioux Thanks sue and for the follow. Nice time of year to come to Oz.
April 11th, 2014  
@anazad511 Thanks Ana. I love lighthouses too, but modern ones don't have the same charm as the older ones have.
April 11th, 2014  
@lafish Thanks so much for the fav Laurie. There are lots of photo opportunities in this area.
April 11th, 2014  
@dgrynn Thanks Deb. This was taken from Fort Scratchley and it is a beautiful view from up there
April 11th, 2014  
@paulaw @happypat Thanks so much to both of you. I agree with the name. Don't know how Nobby's Head got its name, must Google it.
We have peanuts out here called Nobby's Peanuts and there is an advert on television where a group of people are at a party and one of the people says "Lets nibble Nobby's nuts" and everyone stares at her. ha ha.
Yes Pat it was a huge storm. Only lasted about 15 minutes but the damage it did was amazing. Trees uprooted, no power for 24 hours, boats beached. We did quite well compared to some. Only lost a couple of huge branches from some of our trees. The storm was bigger than a tornado and smaller than a cyclone.

I just added another lighthouse, this time in Uruguay: http://365project.org/anazad511/my-3rd-year/2014-04-09

Beautiful shot Babs!! Just a lovely scene and so well captured.
I did a more private message to Annie on FB and mentioned her on another tribute.It is heartbreaking!
April 11th, 2014  
@eyesmile I am in touch by email and will keep an eye on her. Know exactly where she is at present, been there.
April 11th, 2014  
@onewing Sorry got lost in the moment and forgot to say thanks so much for the fav.
April 11th, 2014  
Lovely greens and blues. Interesting rocky high ground surrounded by sand.
April 11th, 2014  
@kathiecb Thanks Kathie. A few weeks before it wasn't quite so green because we had such little rain, but it only takes a couple of days of rain for it to change colour.
April 11th, 2014
