On Saturday – 3rd March 2007 – I went to the 23rd Northland Agricultural Field Days at the Dargaville Racecourse.
I expected to see the usual trade stands and agriculture related exhibitions that are the very reason for these shows but after wandering around for a while – it was a big show, lots of walking in the hot sun – I found some things going on that made interesting photographs. The tractor pulling races, the chainsaw race, the cutting horses, and the Clydesdale team.
One attraction that I hadn’t counted on was helicopter rides out over Dargaville. I had just enough cash on me to pay for a ride so I took the opportunity and had my first helicopter ride.
