Edgecumbe instead of Awakeri

An earthquake measuring 6.3 on the Ricter scale hit Edgecumbe in the Bay of Plenty on 2 March 1987.  This photo shows the damage it did to this steel beam discovered during reconstruction of the Fonterra Edgecumbe Milk Treatment Plant.

Our intention had been to go to a POP inAwakeri but Geoff being 5 minutes ahead of us drove up the drive to discover that there was no room for the 3 vehicles. We had rung the previous evening and assured there was plenty of room.  Yeah right.  No problem out came the trusty Travel Directory and we found the Edgecumbe Cosmopolitan Club only 6 kms away.  This is where we ended up.
