Otira

Dean and I decided to drive to Otira yesterday. Population around 40 people. The town was put up for sale a couple of years ago: http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/3852211/1m-wanted-for-Otira-including-the-pub

It was a typical West Coast day, pelleting down with rain. What a change from the 26 degrees of Christchurch. We’ll have to visit the area again on a sunny day.  However, it was hot and sunny when we stopped at Castle Hill on the way home (photos to follow in another post).
