Jul 2, 2014 - Seal Rocks

Off to Seal rocks today (insert here sounds of seals barking) for a look see. Of course I was really only interested to see the “inclinator” at the lighthouse..... Alas it has been reduced from its Victorian magnificence to an overgrown relic. I remember when the bottom termini was between the two light keepers buildings and there was a sandstone engine house where the Workshop now stands, this apparatus allowed the light keeper to ascend to the base of the tower without having to scramble up the hill at shift change in the middle of the...

Jul 7, 2008 - Seal Rocks

endlich sind wir los gefahren und das war schon aufregend los zu kommen. Der erste stop war Seal Rocks so 300km von Sydney richtung Norden, und da haben wir ein wunderschoenen Platz gefunden direkt am Meer und jeden Tag sehen wir Wale.

May 19, 2006 - Barenjoey to Port Stephens

Heavy of heart, we said goodbye to our family and friends. John and I didn't say very much as we sailed over to Barenjoey. Too many things going through our minds, I guess. Left Barenjoey at 3am the next morning. Noticed there was much fog, and lightning out to sea, and it was very cold. But we did have a good third quarter moon, which was giving us light, and the seas and wind were very calm. On the way, we saw many Australasian Gannets, which we have seen many times before, but then one kind of bird caught our eye. An albatross! He was...
