st hilda in the wood

but we didn't find it.
When we got home, we found we should have gone just a few more kms 
down the road.  So, we took another trip and found it this time!




We couldn't decide if this was an artsy house or just containers
 put together. Either way, it works!

We  found the warning sign at the beginning was 
useful at about the 40km mark!

The road followed the Waitotara River all the way down the road and beyond. 
I have no idea what this structure in the river is.
 If anyone has any ideas, I'd be glad to hear them.

We finally arrived at St Hilda in the Wood Church. 
A lady at the farmhouse across the road saw us and let us inside.




I didn't realize Hubby and I were reflected in the mirror in the center of the organ!


Obviously, 114 years ago, there were many more farmers in the area than there are now. Finding many  trees like this poplar windbreak, surrounding a house that is no longer there, I have to wonder about the houses and lives so far away from 'the city'.

Onuku Church

We came across this beauty while driving around on the Banks Peninsula at Christchurch.

The foundation stone was laid in 1876 and it officially opened in 1878 as the first
non-denominational church in New Zealand.
