Hawkes Bay & Wairarapa Escape

March, 2015


Not long after the Club's annual unsupported tour, Athol had a tour from Napier to Martinborough.
It was a one way tour, with a shuttle being used to get back to Napier.

On the way Margaret took a few photos.

In case you wanted to know, that's the name of the hill in the background.
It is also the longest Maori place name in NZ.
