Title: Cook Strait Ferries New Zealand 2020
Post by: ccs on January 07, 2020, 08:37:10 am
We're currently visiting my daughter in New Zealand. We spent a few days in Wellington over the new year before crossing the Cook Strait to the south island. Plenty time for photographing the various ships on the Cook Strait. To start with here's a few from New Years Eve of Stena Feronia arriving at Wellington in the late afternnon.
