Chris did a great job showing us Napier. He adjusted the ship's arrival to make our day enjoyable. Poor weather didn't deter great views at Te Mata. We loved visiting Birdwoods restaurant/gift shop for a coffee -- so quaint & lovely. Next enjoyed a wine tasting at Craggy Range, and a quick stop at The Mission winery. Finished with photos at National Tobacco Company Bldg. Enjoyed some history along way in beautiful, clean car with water and mints for all. Nice presentation - wish we had more time!
