South African Navy Festival

This weekend, I took the train down to Simon's Town for the South African Navy Festival.  The event ran Friday to Sunday and it was packed with families when I was there on Saturday.  I only got to tour one of the larger support vessels and missed out on touring the combat ship because the queues were so long (bummer!).  Here are some shots from the tour of the SAS Drakensburg:
