HOME OF THE LADY DENMAN - Local history isn't always about the big story - the everyday story of life in the early development of the region can be a fascinating, entertaining and educational journey.

Ships in the bay.

HMAS Anzac.

If you were looking across the bay this afternoon you would have observed a ship crossing back and forth across the bay, That ship is HMAS Anzac, displaying the numbers 150.  Anzac is the lead ship in the Anzac class frigates.
Entering Australian service in 1996, the frigate operated as part of the INTERFET peacekeeping taskforce in 1999. In 2003, she was involved in the Battle of Al Faw, and became the first RAN ship to fire in anger since the Vietnam War. The ship is operational as of 2016.

This afternoon there was low sea mist hugging the water being whipped up by the strong north west wind.  This made getting a clear shot impossible.
