October 5th – 7th: Napier, part two

As promised, more pictures from our time in beautiful Napier and Hawke’s Bay.

The Hawke’s Bay area is well-known for its vineyards, so we spent a day on the wine trail. We also stopped at a nearby olivery, where we gorged ourselves on all the different varieties and bought way more than we planned, and at a creamery. We tasted a bunch of smelly cheeses, and Becky even discovered that she can eat some kinds of blue cheese.

Say cheese!

On the drive home, we caught another spectacular sunset. We just can’t get enough of this New Zealand countryside.
