Despite a pleasant walk on the Camborne walkway with Mary, I had no useful images yesterday.
So I went out again at around six pm, this time to Days Bay from where I hoped to get a shot or two of the very large cruise liner, Celebrity Solstice as she left port. The afternoon was a stunner. It was warm and clear, and the beach at Days bay was crowded with families picnicking and youngster were on the wharf, jumping in to the warm harbour. Perhaps summer is here.
The target of my trip was still firmly moored at Aotea Quay though she was scheduled to depart at six pm. I could see no tugs so presumed her departure was delayed.
The Days Bay ferry came, offloaded its commuters, took on board city bound passengers and left again
The youngsters kept jumping and enjoying themselves as they should be able to at their age.
Some made a big splash with the girls, and some just made a big splash.
After deciding that I wouldn’t see the Celebrity Solstice depart, I turned for home and dinner. As I got to the Esplanade at Petone I was irritated with myself as I spotted the ship passing behind Matiu/Somes Island.
After a little wait, she came into clear view though much further away that I had hoped for.
