We are a retired couple who after living abroad for 5 years are now living in Levin, New Zealand.
From October 2006 we cruised the inland waterways of Britain. We sold Narrowboat Gypsy Rover in July 2010 and continued our travels around the UK in our new Motorhome. In August 2011 we returned to New Zealand ahead of our motorhome which arrived in October. Although now land based we will be continuing our travels throughout New Zealand when time allows.

Leaving Te Anau and Lake Manapouri after a beautiful day we headed for Lumsden for the night.
Another Central Otago Railway Station cut off by the Clyde Dam.
The station is now the site for back packers and the like who sleep in cars and vans. Apparently it deters the vandals so the local’s encourage the tourists.
A Drewery Diesel Shunter with some old goods wagons. How long before they rust away to nothing?
A huge piece of machinery posing as a load.
Another Drewery loco with an1896 “A” class carriage awaiting restoration.
The railway water tower for the old steam loco’s.
A last remaining memory of the train that used to run through here.
