If it’s Friday it must be Napier


In Napier since last night. It is the Art Deco weekend so were lucky to get anywhere, have now moved to the Scenic Circle Hotel on Marine Parade for our last night.

Today is the first day the weather has been truly awful. Rained all day so far.

Pleased to see the County Hotel is still in business, have spent some very pleasant weekends there in the past.

Drove round Ahuriri this morning, the magnificent National Tobacco Company Building is still there.

Love this city, the architecture, the wine, the food and the atomosphere.

    I agree the rain was much needed and even then dumped in the city rather than where the farmers needed it.

    Still enjoyed the visit though.

    Sorry the rain has arrived just as you have. But Hawkes Bay desperately needs this rain. So not much sympathy I am afraid to say.

    Nevermind normal transmission resumes tomorrow – 29 degrees and fine.
