The 75th anniversary of the Royal New Zealand Navy was a couple weeks ago . A number of events were to take place but the weather decided not to play ball, there was also a earthquake in Kaikoura which saw some of the key attractions like the USS Samson divert to provide assistance. Well done lads.
The fleet was to arrive on the Thursday but this also conspired against us with the Navy pushing the arrival date last minute to the Wednesday spoiling the plans to photograph them inbound,
Anyway below are a few images of the weekends event.
Tuesday, 15 November 2016
So three of us wandered of to Thames from Auckland for this event over the weekend
This did not start out so well was initial communication was the event was taking place in Waihi.
Heading to Waihi I may have taken a wrong turn as the Back Seat driver/ navigator was snoozing and failed to correct the driver on his error until well into the trip, he obviously needed a dose of meat and spuds to perk himself up.
A few images of the day with my photo of the day going to the below pet image .
This lad showing these two girls his fluffy wares, as you can see from the image
