Rewanui Abandonment

Took a walk up Rewanui at the weekend.  We bike up here so often we don’t get a chance to explore some of the nooks and crannies.

Our walk revealed a lot of the Inclines history lying abandoned waiting for nature to reassert itself.

This is one of our favourite walks – close to home.  Funny how you can bike something so often though and still not see all the hidden gems.  Easy to get lost in the moment instead of slowing down and looking around – you never know what you might find……

Stephen used his background with black and white photography to showcase this area and the left behind relics at their best.

Jan and Stephen run Breakers Boutique Accommodation on the Great Coast Road north of Greymouth.  Rated #1 on Tripadvisor for property in the area.  Check out their other blog postings or activities page on their website for other ideas on things to see and do in the Grey District – Heart of the West Coast.

    The B&W photos give the place a more historic look… did Stephen plan it that way?? If he did it worked very well… love these photos…
