We don’t get many cruise ships coming to Nelson, but there has been a couple of attractive ones recently. First the Europa:
She was in for about 8 hours before heading off to Picton. The skies were full of helicopters heading off to Abel Tasman park and selected galleries.
The next one, a couple of weeks later, was the L’Austral, also for only about 12 hours or so. I missed her entrance and only just caught her departure:
I liked this next shot, showing the tourist heading off, a returning keeler, and a boat moored for a peaceful night in the hook of the Boulder Bank.
PS sorry about the watermark. The images are a bit larger with this new layout and I’ve had trouble with people nicking them recently (not that a watermark will stop someone who is determined). Comments welcomed.
