Sydney Harbour Bushfire

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

A fire at Sydney's Balls Head on 11th July 2014 looked bad and was attracting helicopters. It was a controlled winter hazard reduction burn. Much of North Sydney was blanketed in smoke. Blues Point Tower is on the right. Taken from a Sydney Ferry.

By the way, I've just hit the 'fav' button for this. Should have done it earlier!

Been doing a bit of research on what possibilities this vessel may be. Most likely the 'Soren Larsen' which hails from New Zealand I think. Does cruises around the South Pacific. Other possibility but less likely is the 'One and All' training ship from South Oz. It's probably not in Sydney Harbour now Roger. So... I'll release you from the commission. :)

Don't spend it all at once Roger. Beer is bad. Rum is better... :]

Roger Powell on September 1, 2014

I haven't tried rum for years.....

I am sure I would Roger, I love the sea, I grew up on the seaside, on the Med, and I miss it!

I'm a landlubber myself but I understand the attraction. I hope you make it to see our famous Harbour one day!
