Day 9 – Hastings Starry Night

Starry Night at Hastings

A rainy start of the day at Taupo today, but nothing like a hot dip in the hot mineral spring before the road trip!!!!

Today, I have had my first experience dumping both the black and grey water tanks in the camp site, it was not too hard and mission accomplished!

New Zealand Retro Caravans

A pleasant drive down to Napier and then Hastings, on an easy 150kms drive. We meet with Steve, an Airstream importer, very nice chap indeed! we are going to stay overnight here at Steve’s property. Steve owns a caravan rental business. Steve has about a dozen retro caravans parked on his lawn, he intend to sell them all, so if you are a collector or a renovator, it’s a good opportunity to own one!

Airstream in Hastings

We are taking Steve and Jill out for dinner tonight as a token of our appreciation.
