The Scene by maggiemae

The Scene

This is Lake Mahinapua just south of Hokitika which also has a great history. In the 1880's they dredged a river coming off this lake and made an inland passage to transport goods as there were no roads. An old steamboat is nearby which they pulled out of its watery grave and set up on this beach.
Three good Things:
1. New camp now set up in School grounds for campers.
2. This site is only 2 blocks away from the Hokitika Wild Food Festival held tomorrow.
3. Went for a roast dinner at an old pub here but the roast was all sold out. The placed was packed with people and a great band was playing. When they played 'Sweet Caroline', the whole room erupted into song!
Looks lovely. I do love your interesting New Zealand names!

@maggiemae In the interests of decorum, and the defamation laws, I shall refrain from comment.

@golftragic Let alone racist, Marnie! I don't think they have roast in Asia

@s4sayer Thanks Margo - our civilisation seems to have a large number of indigenous peoples that intervened in the history of NZ. Not really, yours - in France!
