Yeasterday I boarded the Media Boat to take pics of the launch of the new coastguard vessell at Tutukaka. About 300 people turned up to be there and watch the welcome ceremony and of course see the boat! Beautiful day for it and for those of you who can't wait to buy the paper (!) or don't live in Northland, here are some pics (sorry if they're a bit big!!)
It was so awesome to see the Coastguard celebrated in this way. They do an amazing job and my hat goes off to them.
