Nelsons Bay

Some snapshots taken while spending the weekend with friends at Nelsons Bay/Port Stephens shire.
This location is described by whereis.com as the gateway to the north coast of N.S.W., 60 klms north of Newcastle.

Saturday afternoon by the marina with moody skies.  Good for walking, browsing the shops, and a leisurely coffee stop.




next morning and, "what a difference a day makes"

sightseeing, whale and dolphin cruises are on the go

it's how you surf when there's no surf I guess; it's looks like fun.  They make it look easy but I bet it's not!



and back at the marina, where the first photograph had been taken the previous afternoon.

In that first photo, it is hard to tell the sea from the sky!

Beautiful photos, Carole! I love the moody skies, the boats in the marina and the sea gulls. And yes, what a difference a day makes, with the bright blue skies and water. I think my favorite though is the moody skies.

They're all beautiful! I especially like the first shots with the grey skies! Love the boats docked in the harbor.

Nothing involving balance and water is as easy as it looks!

I had similar thoughts about standing under the chandelier - but nothing happened!

I thought it looked delightful under grey skies, but what a difference blue skies make.
