Sam-bro’s coffee cruise

Coffee overlooking the saltwater baths.

Newcastle or “Newy” in New South Wales is a comfortable three hour train journey from Sydney central. It’s an interesting mix of industrial enterprise interspersed with beaches, pelicans, cappucino and classy red motorbikes.

Passing pelicans. These patient locals wait for fish scraps at the marina.

Newcastle Beach: warm enough for a mid-winter swim.

My brother Sam lives there too. Here he is with his BMW bike.

Round town on the red machine!

Cruising round between coffee shops is an enjoyable way to see the sights. This morning coffee club in the suburbs provides plenty of leafy trees, and a good gathering place. The kids are conveniently congregated  on a nearby trampoline.
