kawana flour mill and raetihi

Out latest road trip included the Kawana Flour Mill that was established in 1854 and restored starting in the 1970's. Click here to read more about the mill.





We stopped at Raetihi for a comfort stop and cup of coffee. The town


It has a lovely art deco building from when it was a busy town.

This is a 'typical' rest-room stop back in the day with women's public toilets.

What a charming town, although I think the cows would make me a bit nervous. (I am afraid of cows)
