The problem with the Nautilus is not the room or the motel itself it is the really busy road that it sits on. We were given their quietest road but that meant the side two rooms from the front so still noisy. There is a port on the edge of Napier and all the large lorries from port drive along the front of Napier and that is where a lot of the hotels are positioned (there is a nice promenade).

After getting advice from Tourist Information we booked ourselves on the Gannet Colony tour. This was the most expensive option but the other two options were not open to us. If the tide is right you can walk along the beach, or you can go in a trailer pulled by a tractor again along the beach. However you guessed it, the tides were wrong. We went …

... I find a good strong stick, for security. Cars pull into the carpark. They either see the vans and leave quickly, or stay for 20 minutes or so. This must be where the stoners go to park up.

We arrived in Napier at noon and proceeded to enjoy the sunny day by walking around the town. There were many shops still open and we bought a few small souvenirs. Napier is a major port with the number of containers down at the port. Later in the day we took a drive around the port and marina. Very nice condo type dwellings and bars and restaurants. Napier is the Art Deco capital of the world!!!!!! There ...

After having a good look around the boat and a little play, we all went to a bar on the waterfront. Phil's cousin also joined us. It was a stunning sunset that evening and we stayed there to see in the new year. On New Year's Day we went into Napier for a coffee before walking along the cobbled beach. We then went to ...

Apart from road kill we have not seen any possums in New Zealand yet although at some point we expect to see one looking shifty on top of a rubbish bin somewhere! We then went to find the camp site which wasn't too far from the city centre. It was a huge place and as it wasn't ...
