A meeting recently saw us back at Moana allowing us more time than just a quick stop while driving past.
We couldn’t have asked for a better day – pretty much the first real day of hot temperatures so perfect place to be – right at the lake.
A friend offered Stephen a go on a paddle board. Being a surfer he thought – why not, I can do this………
I honestly don’t know when I’ve laughed so much so often. It was brilliant watching him continually loosing his balance and tipping off into the water. Of course he says he was just perfecting his skills at climbing on and making the most of the water to cool off – yeah right!
There were lots of people making the most of the glorious day – either walking along the shoreline or out on the water in boats.
We saw one happy group heading out for a couple of hours sightseeing around the lake. Looked like they were going to be having a good time.
A stop at Moana wouldn’t be complete without checking out the old railway station – I say old, it is still used today for the scenic TranzAlpine train – an idyllic stopover for sure and what a location. It would certainly put a smile onto my face pulling into a station with Lake Brunner as the backdrop.
Jan and Stephen run Breakers Boutique Accommodation on the Great Coast Road north of Greymouth. They enjoy getting out and about and exploring this lovely region they get to call home – named by Lonely Planet Best in Travel 2014 as one of the top 10 regions to visit in the world.
