This scene is from Ahuriri in Napier.  I was over in the Hawkes Bay last week, and had packed some camera gear.  Originally I was supposed to be in China.  

The mission to investigate the illegal market in bear-bile however, is suffering a few delays.  On the plus-side, the environment is much nicer in the Hawkes Bay than China.

The scene here was improved by a juvenile fur seal.  It was swimming around the posts in the harbour in front of me. You can spend a lot of time not taking photos when there’s some native NZ wildlife to admire…
