After our first breakfast 'en van' we headed out - I stopped off and joined the Top Ten Club (a useful discount card!). Then we headed over at speed to see the Wai-O-Tapu thermal wonderland where we saw the Lady Knox Geyser and spent a happy but smelly hour wandering around the thermal pools!
From there we headed to Napier - which is a seaside town sporting some fantastic Art Deco architecture. Town itself was not up to much and for once I was disappointed in the woolshop I found! However had lunch in Provedore which was a cool little place and where Freddie was able to inject his own doughnut!!
From there we headed to our campsite in Hastings - which was about the same as the UK Hastings - not too much to write home about! We went for a very long walk after walking in a huge circle! But we did buy the Beats Pill (forgot to mention the hideous whistling in the van which we needed to mask the sound of!) and found the New World supermarket which was fab!
