Back in November 2013, Gaffa finished off his officer training for the Royal Australian Navy and had his Passing Out Parade. There were actually 3 separate events on over 2 days, so I had to find 3 different outfits to wear. Me being indecisive, packed more than what I needed, just in case I changed my mind at the last minute, or had any wardrobe malfunctions...haha.

I was running late to the pre drinks, so I didn't actually get any :( but then we were lead into the main hall for dinner, via a red carpet! Fancy stuff. We had been seated randomly by the main organisers, and was lucky enough to have the table right in front of the projector so we could watch the slideshow.

The next morning was home time for all the newly graduated officers. Their rooms had to be emptied and clean before they could leave. Gaffa had our whole car full of his stuff that he had accumulated over 4 months. And then off we drove back home.

Until next time, (hopefully it'll be sooner rather than later!)
