West Coast Reflections


reflections in Kawhaka water race

Yet again rain was forecast for us here on the West Coast and yet again it did not eventuate.  Quite the opposite in fact – blue skies and sunshine.

Stephen and I headed out on our bikes to explore some more of the West Coast Wilderness Trail.  With not a breath of wind the Kapitea Reservoir and Kawhaka water-race sections were perfect for reflections.

This posting is short in relation to words today – we’re going to let the photos do all the talking.

I hope you enjoyed them as much as we enjoyed being out there amongst it and seeing it all in person.

Jan and Stephen run Breakers Boutique Accommodation on the Great Coast Road north of Greymouth.  They enjoy getting out and exploring the many wonders that make up this wonderful part of New Zealand.  Check out their other blog postings or activities page for things to see and do on the West Coast.
