This morning we left Taupo & headed over to check our the Geyser field area on the road back to Rotorua. The Wai-o-Tapu Wonderland was a national park geothermal area. Quite amazing how the area looked like a moonscape with craters, lime & sulphur hot springs as well as geysers & bubbling mud pools. From there we trekked overland through the mountains down to Napier. There were some huge logging trucks & even bigger steep climbs but was an interesting drive. We are here in Napier for the next 2 nights at a nice one bedroom apartment overlooking the water. On the way in to town we went to a nice winery called Esk Valley, bought a couple of lovely wines, a rose & a Shiraz. More wineries to check out tomorrow... Weather has been holding, bit cloudy & cool with some sunshine but tomorrow meant to rain. Time will tell.
