On This Day . . .
On February 6, 2018, we docked in the port of Napier, New Zealand, about a mile away from the city center. Napier was leveled by an earthquake in 1931 and the entire city was rebuilt in the Art Deco style. We took the shuttle into town so we could get to a private tour that we had booked. The tour took us out into the countryside to the Heretaunga Plains and up to Te Mata Peak for 360 degree views of the entire area. We returned to Napier and toured the suburbs and then a tour of the town. After the tour we ambled the town on foot.
