Great things about HB

OK so the heat and impending audit may have got to me, my last post(s) have been a little negative so here are the reasons I live in HB (in no particular order)

  • Sunshine (and the associated heat 🙂 )
  • 1.5 hours to the snow (and the associated cold 🙂 )
  • 1 hour to some bloody fantastic white sandy beaches; Waimarama and Ocean beach.
  • Ujazi, best coffee in Napier, they are closely followed by DMP and Rossi
  • The waterfront restaurants
  • The mountain bike parks
  • The Kaweka Ranges
  • The Ruahine Ranges
  • The wineries
  • The people
  • The horticulture.  It gives me a great buzz at harvest time to see all the trucks and tractors, and hot and sweaty people driving on the roads; it means our province is working and doing well.
  • The fact that I can feel like a swim at the beah at 4.30pm and I can go and have one. (and I live 20kms from the beach)
  • The footpaths along Marine Parade (thanks Rotary)
