Sunday 16th March - Over to North Island, Napier

The weather is excellent for our crossing over Cook Strait to Wellington.  It's dry and warm and no significant swell nor wind.  Don't know what all the fuss was about with this supposed storm that was expected.  

Flat calm all the way, so no cyclone as predicted. Dolphins swam with the boat but we missed seeing them.
We headed for Napier North East along the spectacular route 2.  The massive gorges were delightful to ride although we both agreed this is a road that would be dangerous to cycle due to the number and speed of the logging trucks, narrow bridges, lack of a hard shoulder, hairpin bends and of course the serious inclines.  We are so pleased with our car, 'Beast', he had now been renamed 'Beasty'.
