Napier and surroundings (New Zealand)

I went to Napier during the Easter break but unfortunately I came across hideous rainy weather (which is unusual in this part of New Zealand) nevertheless I managed to take some pictures

Napier is a small city of 58.000 people in the North Island of the country and it's the largest producer of pears and apples.

The city was destroyed by a huge earthquake in 1931 and it was completely rebuilt in art deco style which was the prevalent architectural style at that time
