Mount Manganui

East Coast, North Island, new Zealand on 14/01/1981.

Having climbed up the mountain we stayed there for the whole afternoon soaking up the sun & the views.

We had paid off the Shell tanker " Eburna" at Au

Pat, tankers were a bit more efficient than cargo boats.... :)
& we went home with money in our pockets! Regards, Rick

Have a similar photo taken of me at the summit in the archive somewhere.
I visited Mount Manganui on 'British Argosy' several times, and quite a pleasant place it was too.
