A taste of summer …

Of course, no blog about Newcastle would be complete without pictures of the beach, and with good reason, we have fabulous beaches.

The weather here does not seem very summerish at the moment. We have had days of warm weather followed by cold and rain, wind and thunder storms. Summer is coming but is taking its time. So a few shots from last summer to remind us that it will come and to show the variety of bicycle transport that is used here in Newcastle. Some of these pictures were taken on Australia day last summer.

Carrying a surfboard by bicycle, a very Novocastrian thing to do if you live close to the beach … a closer view …and other wheel related activities close to the beach …

This post is just a reminder that summer is on its way, and that we are getting small tastes of it, even now.

    Lovely photos. Is it possible to present all your wonderful photos at a larger size?

      Hi Annie, thanks for commenting, I check out your blog too 🙂

      You can click on the photo to see a much larger version of it. I will attempt to improve my WordPress skills to make the photos look bigger on the blog. If you can make any suggestions about this I would be grateful …

    Alas, I use Blogspot so I can identify each photo individually to be large, medium or small. I do not know how it works in Word Press. Now that I know to click on your photos, wonderful. They are so pretty.

      Sorry for the inadvertent torture Ian. I will probably do a few more posts with pics of the beach next month though, maybe you’d better not look at those posts. 🙂
