    Ship aground off Newcastle (with photo)

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    This doesnt happen very often - a ship has run aground off newcastle (nobbys beach). *I work in the coal industry in Newcastle, so its pretty big news! Apparently its only 50m off shore.

    I guess the pilot was having problems finding a decent parking spot?

    Or maybe he was just so amazed at bringing coal to Newcastle that he lost track of where he was. ;D

    It will be interesting to see them re-float it...thats a lot of ship to move. Is the master ordering take away Lates whilst watching the bow settle deeper into the sand! Poor buggers.

    Cheers

    Nothing new or original but I took this earlier today.
    The waves were making a very cool thud as they crashed against the ships hull.

    I think they should leave it there as a tourist attraction :)

    Too bad it is not off Stockton beach as the ol wreck there (which attracts a lot of 4wders and Fisherfolk) is starting to look quite second hand.
