My photo

With more time on my hands these days, this gives me something to do. I hope you get some pleasure, along with me, in sharing this new stage of my life.

Looking After Charlie - Day 6. Catherine Hill Bay after Morning at the Beach

We started the day again by walking Charlie down at the beach, where he met his 'Lady'.
After lunch headed off to Catherine Hill Bay. This sleepy little village of small coal-worker's cottages was recently threatened by development which would have destroyed it's quaintness.
We finished off the day with a sunset at Woy Woy Bay.
 
More photos from todays visit to Catherine Hill can be seen here.

Miner's cottages.
 
Nearly all the cottages had the small front door with one window either side.

Must have been painful to lose your undies in this way.

I think I've found a new hobby.....man-hole cover trade marks.
