|Queen Victoria arriving Napier 16/2/2008.
I think half of Napier must have become shipspotters when she arrived at lunchtime. This well publicised visit saw roads to the port clogged with sightseers who were able to get a close up view of the vessel when the port opened the gates to the adjacent wharf to the public. Her visit also coincided with Art Deco weekend, and passengers were greeted by a Catalina flying boat and a couple of other WW II aircraft. A line of vintage cars was waiting on the wharf when she tied up and many Napier people were dressed in 1930's style clothing.
The was by far the largest ship to ever berth at Napier and the pilot had to do a complete turn in the confines of the very small harbour. Needless to say he did an excellent job and made it look so easy.

Remarkable pic of this new lady, Tony.
It is most understandable why she attracted so much attention from the local population. She is quite a sight to behold.
Cheers from cold Canada.
