Me on my first motor bike in 1968 at Redhead 2nd creek. This was a 1948  Jawa, you didnt even see many of those around then. What is interesting in this  picture is, in the top right you can see the initial revegetation of the sand  dunes after rutile mining. A floating dredge went along the beach from  Redhead to Blacksmiths and back.

Almost everyone in Newcastle took a photo of the Pasha Bulker  grounded at Nobbys in June 2007, it just looked so surreal. Thankfully they got  it off before any major damage was done to Newcastle, or the ship, or anyone  being hurt. Great work all involved.
