ANy port in a storm but preferably not this one
THUS FAR AND NO WAVE DODGING is the basic message which confronts visitors to Newcastle Harbour. A sad reflection of its former glory. The fishing fleet is gone. No coastal tramps or anything else calls herer any more. The local small boats have yet to take to the water. Water? Its sea weed until the tide comes right in. The two piers are usually locked and I doubt if anyone will be tempted to wave dodge. No waves for a start. Sad place and the faint whiff of sewage from the adjacent plant doers nothing for its charms.
