Another blog post from my visit to Napier, New Zealand. Although this was in January it is actually nice to put up some of my posts a bit later and reflect on what was a wonderful visit to see family and to visit places familiar and some new.
New Zealand has such beautiful fresh produce so we were excited to get out early to the Napier Urban Farmers' Market, we bought a variety of fruit and vegetables that we later cooked up for lunch and dinner.
I wore a reproduction 20's dress by Collectif and I was really happy to find it on ebay for a bargain price last year as I had been searching for it for quite a while. It was the perfect choice for the hot Napier weather.
After we left the markets to walk through the streets to look at shops and head down to the beach, I almost had a bird poop on my head. After spending the early morning putting my finger waves in I did not want that to happen, I know they say it's good luck but I'm glad it just missed me.
It's always nice to have a dog around and my Aunt's dog loved exploring the markets and streets as she goes to a market at home each weekend. Sophie melted hearts and she didn't mind being in some of the photos (Sophie is one of Fifi & Leo's pups - sorry I have mentioned this before).
And then I found beautiful cars - yay!
And got to sit in one of the cars with Sophie!
We headed down to the beach to dip our feet, the stones were really hot but the water was so lovely and Sophie enjoyed being carried down for a swim after walking through town all morning. Mum's dress looked so pretty flowing in the wind and I just love Sophie's happy face here as she smiled at my Aunty!

We went back to the motel and had lunch with Grandma after picking up some fish to go with the fresh veggies and then spent the afternoon by the pool for a few hours followed by a BBQ for dinner. It was such a nice way to relax after strolling through Napier all morning!
