Sculptures on the Geelong Waterfront

When you look down the main street of Geelong towards the sea you can see the Waterfront sculptures entitled 'North'. They've been there about five years I think and we used a pic of them for the cover of the book 'Around Geelong' published by the Geelong Writers Inc.

Because of the vicinity of the yacht club and hundreds of boats, I think the sculptor had in mind the shape of sails. I think they are impressive.

Of course big business being what it is, there's a plan afoot to spoil the sea view down Yarra Street by supermarkets and co by putting a high bridge full of shops across the street stopping the view of the sea! There is opposition but I guess money counts and the multinationals will probably win.
