New Zealand, August 2003

Col's cottage. Karamu Stream, just left of the cottage in the last pic. Havelock North from Te Mata Peak. Another view.

Te Mata Peak and the Tukituki River running down to the Pacific Ocean. Napier in the distance. My 'Ute', the 'Golden Holden' - apparently. A 1981 Holden WB 'Kingswood' Utility. 3.3l six. A 5.0l V8 drops straight in. Hmm...

After '31 earthquake Napier was rebuilt Art Deco style. Another 'Art Deco City' street. And another... A hotel, not a lodge.

Cape Kidnappers from Napier. Ocean Beach looking North to Cape Kidnappers. Ocean Beach. Ocean Beach.

Ocean beach. Ocean Beach road. Valley beside Ocean Beach road. Waimarama, South of Ocean Beach.

In the country less than 4 hrs - oops. Jet sprint boat. Seats, 350 Chev, jet and saucer. New toy. DR-Z400 with Supermotard wheels. Introducing the natives to Haggis.

Hold the mouse pointer over the thumbnail for a description.
