This post was going to be all about how much I'm looking forward to us taking off for Napier tomorrow. I think we may have been foiled though, by the international one day cricket match which is on tomorrow (don't ask me who's playing - probably NZ v.s. someone else). There could be a shortage of accomodation, and the place could be full of cricket hooligans with armloads of ammunition (for throwing at the opposition).
We should probably just go anyway - how many people could possible want to go to Napier to watch a cricket match, especially when there's national dragon-boating champs right here. Surely all the traffic will be heading in the opposite direction from us.
We could stop somewhere halfway along and then go on to Napier on Sunday - but there are only cow-poke towns between here and there as far as I can tell. We could go somewhere else entirely, but it took us so long to decide to go to Napier - there isn't enough time left this summer to think of an alternative.
