      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 …

We find that this is the first geothermal power plant of New Zealand (there are now seven, which produce 7% of New Zealand’s energy), and it had been planned for the country’s first atomic power plant. The geothermal ...

      ... The road ends at the ‘harbour’ (a muddy tidal inlet, a boat and two tractors), so I backtrack to Mahia Beach on the other side of the peninsula. There’s a hill in the middle of town which I climb for the amazing view. The track to the top is steep, slippery and barely visible in parts. I love that there are still places where Health and Safety doesn’t stop people from being able to hurt themselves. It’s windy at the top and my eyes water, however ...

      ... definitely informative but the tasting was a bit wasted on me as I generally put wine into four categories: red, white, nice and not nice. It didn't help that we were on a tour with three connoisseurs who were studying wine and seemed to delight in finishing our guide's sentences for her. But I got some wine out of it so hey ho.

      A fantastic discovery we've made in Napier is that Dominos pizza here in New Zealand is weirdly cheap. It also has the most amazing ...

      ... puffy, so I went to the pharmacy to get eye drops. Then slept for most of the day as my eyes were so sore and scratchy! I watched a few films and did some washing up, laundry and tidied the caravan. But mainly slept! We didn't get tea. Apparently the cook wasn't cooking but then Mark had a text from Colin at half 8 saying she was cooking tea now. What use is that! So we got fish and chips instead. We don't mind not getting tea as long as we know before it gets late. We came back ...
