Freeing the Pasha

I neglected to mention that the Pasha Bulker was finally freed from its temporary "home" on Nobby's Beach, Newcastle. The folks here worked tirelessly to ensure that the collier was safely wrested from the coast, where it had been stranded for nearly a month, and with minimal oil spillage.

My thanks go out to all of the people who worked so hard to make this happen. I am one of the many who are very happy to have the beach back.
