Mawhera  by kali66


The mouth of the Grey River at Greymouth. wish they would change the name to the Maori , Mawhera , which means widespread river mouth (ma – short for manga, 'branch', 'tributary' or 'stream' – and whera, 'spread', 'open', 'out'). although the mouth of the river has been modified by the port and tipheads and floodwall, as the river occasionally hankers to take a wider path. . There is a rather dangerous river bar which has wrecked several ships and fishing boats over the years.
I think Mawhera sounds much nicer. Like your pov here

I do agree Mawhera would be a great name. This is a view I have never seen either. Very different and shows the river mouth off so well.

Good to look down over the river mouth. Your name definitely sounds better.

I like the cool greens with the warm oranges of the buildings.
Were you on a hill when you took this pic.
