Early in the morning, Rebecca went for a walk. This photo shows Temata Peak in the distance.


We went to the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Napier, and caught up with lots of friends whom we hadn’t seen in many years.


After church we drove into the heart of Napier and had a relaxing lunch in one of the many cafes. Art Deco is a key attraction for tourists.


Later in the afternoon we went up to Temata Peak. This is a “must visit” location for anyone passing through the Hawkes Bay.


The ride is simply stunning.


Looking at the road coming up the hill, with Hastings in the background.


The hills facing south-west have great character.


One of the many wineries in the Hawkes Bay.


There is significant pressure to keep New Zealand GE (Genetically Engineered crop) free. This farmer obviously supports the stance.


And a few more shots of taken from the road heading back down to the plain.
