Today was a wonderful day exploring the Mount Maunganui area…. It was a very active day which started by climbing to the top of Mount Maunganui… great exercise and a magnificent view. We then headed back down and ran into Brad, Gloria, Fred & Carol who were just completing the trails circling Mount maunganui. We stopped for some refreshments and then walked through town checking out the beach and shops. After lunch, I decided to head back out to Mount Maunganui and took the trail around the base… wonderful scenery! It turned out to be just a beautiful day while staying pretty close to the ship…. Tomorrow, Napier, New Zealand.
