Hawkes Bay

19 Mar
Cancelled trip to Mt Egmont, Lake Taupo and Gisbourne.

Management decision is to go straight to Hawkes Bay and take R and R for 3 days to swim in the Pacific.

We drove direct to Napier and find the concert is in Hastings – Im glad as I was not inspired by the Art Deco fa├žade of Napier – the sea looks inviting.



20 Mar
We found a Motel close to the venue and settled in for a few days relaxation to discover that this part of Hawkes Bay is one of the most beautiful parts of New Zealand.

We swim at Ocean Beach sight see and shop – all very theraputic !

21 Mar We drive up Te Mata peak and swim on Waimarama Beach – surrounded by lifestyle !! The latest real estate fad in NZ.

I have a little rehearsal – the piano is small but OK for the lovely new church which is arranged in the round. The programme will be more Bach – the setting is quietly inspiring.
