Looking again at old_greywolf2000's flickr image of a warning notice on the post modern Promenade at Newcastle, Norn Iron, Huttonian is struck at the cautious, almost kill joy approach behind the Water Safety Informtion notice-of which there are about 5 altogether. No Life Guards on duty. Well fair enough. If you are postively discouraged from going into the water, Life Guards are a bit superflous. Strong Currents? Indeed Sir, but over a mile out to sea.This is a shallow sheltered bay.
Slippery rocks. Ooddles of them as the building of the new prom wall has sucked the sand away for about 200 metres.
But NO WAVE DODGING! Is there to be no fun anymore? Just stand there like a good Presbyterian and let the waves hit you. Dodge and you will pay for it. Not an Inch. No Surrender. Ulster Still Says No
to wave dodging and inflatables
at any rate.
