We were fortunate to have blue skies, warm to hot sun and a light breeze.

 Lake Macquarie is a lovely place to visit, with many places to see and activities to participate in. It’s even better when you live here.

  1. There’s something about boats at rest. I think it strikes some kind of archetypal cord deep within. Thanks Linda – great images.

  2. Oh dear Mavis – you are certainly having a late cold winter! We had the warmest summer on record, so I suppose it balances it out somewhat.

  3. Thanks for posting the photos Linda. I did go last year but couldn’t come this time. Painting my front door!

  4. An interesting variety of boats! Thanks for posting. 🙂
