Day 4 of the Test
Another day at the cricket in a game we are destined to lose !!
Day 5 of the Test
Got up early and went onto Marine Parade Napier
Amazing ribbon of light sandwiched between the sea and cloud
Then a quick trip around the city to photograph some of the many fine art deco building in Napier
A large amount of the Hawkes Bay and especially Napier was destroyed by an Earthquake and subsequent fire in 1931.
Almost all of the cities buildings were rebuilt 1932-34 in Art Deco style .... Napier considers itself the art deco capital of the world
The test was lost by lunchtime and we made the uneventful drive back to Auckland.
Just one week until my Round the World Trip
Tension is building
