Isn't that a dramatic backdrop - scanned from a slide by my niece. Everyone visiting the big smoke (Wellington) to see my sister Robyn off on her 2nd OE (Overseas Experience). I'm guessing 1965.

Of note my mother (Ruby) far left, dad (Wallace) with the binoculars, brother Richard tallest at the back, sister Judy in white in the front, sister Beth in yellow with the blonde hair .. and of me in the silly little sailor suit in front.
Anybody get the idea that I was an afterthought :-))

Looks like I was trying to run away from the photo rather than run away to sea Hans. But no chance of that happening by the look of it Hans, Aunty has her eye on me, I think I'm about to get grabbed by the ear :-)
