Nobbys beach, A year after the big storm

Today is the first anniversary of the massive June storms that caused major flooding and damage last June.

You may remember the story of the Pasha Bulker, the huge ship that blew up onto Nobbys beach in Newcastle. It was a major tourist attraction for the couple of weeks it took them to re-float it and pull it out to sea.

We drove in to Nobbys today and went for a walk along the lighthouse path. The road we parked on has been renamed "Pasha Way"

It was a beautiful day with blue skies for the first time in ages and we managed to do a long walk before the black clouds blew over with the next storm threatening to start any moment.
We found a table under the shelter from any rain that might start and got fish and chips in Nobbys kiosk.

It was great to get out of the house after a week of constant rain and the windscreen wipers were only needed as we drove home so we timed it perfectly!
