On a recent trip down south there was a compulsory stop in the village of Moana for some photos of Lake Brunner and her surroundings.
Lake Brunner is 37kms inland from Greymouth – not far into our journey but someone who is always taking note of our surroundings spotted some fantastic cloud formations sitting over the mountains so a quick stop was a must.
I say a quick stop…….
Give him his dues, it was a worthwhile stop and actually a shame we had to keep going as it was a perfect day to just sit and relax and soak up the beautiful lake and mountain surroundings.
A quick walk onto the swing-bridge across the Arnold River leading to the start of the Rakaitane walk and we were rewarded with amazing views of towering Kahikatea and Kamahi trees hugging the edges of the river.
Short and sweet but time to hit the road.
