It was drizzling in the morning, therefore we could only tour the unique Art Deco buildings in Napier with car. In 1931, a deadliest earthquake devastated Hawkes Bay including Napier city. When Napier was rebuilt, Art Deco architectural design was widely used. (read more about Art Deco here). Taking pictures was also a challenge for us, not only because of the rain and also because of the angle limitation as we stayed inside the car. Anyway, here are the best 4 pictures we have.

Before we went for dinner, we also covered the famous Government Building Historic Reserve.
The Beehive - executive wing
Sern-Ty's wife joined us for dinner and they brought us to Capitol restaurant in Wellington Central. It must be a very famous restaurant in downtown as it was full house when we were there. I will always remember this dinner, the excellent food we had, but most important of all, the great friends that made the dinner memorable. Let's see what we had for dinner.
Soup of the dayI could not remember what the waiter had told us about this soup. But it was something that I never had before and it was great.
bread with olive
Fish of the Day
Free range chicken breast on a bed of creamed corn
soft centered chocolate pudding with creme francheA good dinner should be ended with some desserts. So we ordered 3 out of 5 desserts from the menu.

Tomorrow, we would be taking the Interislander ferry to the South island.
