Home / Family / Napier: In Photos


I took the kids on a roadie in the holidays, just the 3 of us. We went and stayed 5 days with my Dad, who moved down there in Level 3 Lockdown.

Rather than a big long post about what we did and when, I will just show you some photos. Napier is a really beautiful place, and I can’t believe it’s taken me almost 39 years to visit there.

This was the furthest I’ve ever driven myself, and I have to admit, I was nervous!! But we made it there and back with no issues, had a stop off in Taupo on both trips.

We were lucky to get an absolute cracker of a day, absolutely beautiful.
Made it safely to Napier with a couple of hours daylight to spare!
The playgrounds along the waterfront are awesome! We spent a couple of hours there trying everything out.
Sunset from Cape Kidnappers, looking back towards Napier.

First morning sunrise from Dad’s place in Te Hauke.
Te Mata Peak. My boy now has a new favourite place, he kept asking to go back!
Sunrise Morning 2 was even more spectacular!
Birdwoods. So many cool sculptures, and a LOLLY SHOP!
Aquarium visit.
Mister D’s Bistro. Pretty amazing doughnuts, that come to you freshly cooked, then you inject the sauce/flavour yourself.
Our last day, just went exploring in the rain.

That’s just some of the highlights. I’m sure there’s still a lot to see, and we will most definitely be back to explore some more!
