The story goes like this: I went to hang out on the road at Shantytown waiting for his arrival.
All up there was only 12 people including a few kids waiting!
The weather was bloody awful, pouring and windy but not so freezing cold.
He arrived in a convoy, and we had no idea which vehicle he was in, so I was having to try to take pictures of all the vehicles! There were a few girls there, neighbour Colleen had the coolest fluro sign,
But luckily Deb squealed, and I got the general idea it was the second vehicle that we needed to focus on, Colleen lost the camera button, it disappeared while she was having wee heart palpitations and holding up her sign,
SO we got the first pic (very happy!!) Love that WIlliam is smiling (and John Key laughing) at Colleen's sign!
We then went back a bit later when he was due to leave and got more photos, the convoy coming out of Shantytown
Colleen's leaving sign
All in all, an exciting event, and I am really pleased that I braved the rotten weather, possibly putting my cold recovery back a day or two, but whats a day or two for the chance of a lifetime!?
