Riding the breakwall

Schools out for the weekend, and what better way to take advantage of the break that to take the kids into the foreshore to ride their bikes along the breakwall...  Of course first stop on the way, Macca's breaky, armed with Coffee, where we sat under the picnic area at Nobby's beach.  The day was a little overcast, nice and cool, we saw dolphins in the harbour, the boats on the water, fisherman fishing the breakwall, and all the little Nippers doing their thing at the Surf Life Saving Club.

Afterwards we went for a drive around Newcastle, taking in the sites.  The boys wanted to go and have a look at the graveyard behind the Cathedral church as I had been talking about it a few days earlier about how old the graves were there.  They date right back to the early 1800's.  I'd say the first settlers of Newcastle..  Amazing really!  We have such history and heritage in our own back yards...
