Last Friday night was the traditional start to the Blessing of the Fleet celebrations I talked about here a few days ago.

I couldn’t make that one, but the Nelson Mail covered it with a photo on Saturdays front page.

With the 5th November coinciding with Saturday next weekend, it may just be one that the local cats, dogs and chickens won’t forget in a hurry.
