SZ-30MR - Tall Ships in Port
1

On the last Saturday of last month, having seen the arrival of the Tall Ships on Friday, I had a look at them in port. Here are three of them at Queens Wharf as I arrived by ferry -

From left to right are EUROPA, PICTON CASTLE and LORD NELSON.

I went on the wharf but did not join the queues to get on to them. There was the BREEZE under sail -

There was the 'Maritime Crew' on Princes Wharf. They are a bunch of shanty singers I had not seen since the America's Cup was raced here in Auckland -

I have their card in my pocket, so I must remember to send them a disk with the video.

Talking of video, here is the arrival of the Tall Ships, with lots of wind that shook the camera as well as the tripod.

The in-port video also takes you inside 'The Cloud' and gives you some of the shanty singing -

On Monday I did not miss the departure. There was a rain squall over the harbour, but I only got a few drops on the camera -

Now I must get on to make the discs for some of the people that feature in the second video.

Sun is shinnig, boats are sailing and aproaches to state of art port.

Excellent, way better to share than my boring, stay on couch autmn weekend here. I should own a small salmonid hacthery in New Zeeland for the cold winter days in Northern Hemisphere.

So beautifull images of a beautifull day Henry. Thank you

Mind you, their management techniques are 19th century. Most of the container ships go to Tauranga now.

Excellent, way better to share than my boring, stay on couch autumn weekend here. I should own a small salmon hatchery in New Zeeland for the cold winter days in the Northern Hemisphere.

However, quite recently, one such hatchery just about got wiped out by bad weather. They started again from scratch almost.

So beautiful images of a beautiful day Henry. Thank you.

Thanks for watching. It is rare to have such an event taking place here. For watching it, Mount Victoria is just 15 minutes walk from where I am sitting now (which is much of my time).

Thank you.

I do feel that some of the Olympus pocket P&S jobs are underrated. My SZ-30MR is now the third Olympus model that has survived a number of outings when St. Peter was constantly spitting. (The others are the SP-570UZ and the Stylus 9010.)
