I found a new mural on the outskirts of Greymouth. In nearby Runanga on the side of the Workingman's Club is this one which depicts the historic sports wall of fame featuring rugby league, basketball, tennis, boxing, cross-country running and marathon running.
Linking up with Mural Monday.

On Greymouth's main road on the way into town is this monument dedicated to those locally who fought in the first world war between 1914 - 1918.
It's a substantial monument and the inscription on the bottom says "Remember with thanksgiving the truth and faithful men who in the years of the great war 1914-1918 went forth for God and right".
Lest we forget.

Kumara is about 20 minutes south of Greymouth on the way to Hokitika and it's one of those little towns originally put together by gold miners. This building was built in 1870 with a manager and one bank teller working within. By 1876 there were at least 3 other banks in the town; this one, the Union Bank and the Bank of Australasia.

It was that time of the year again, time for my car's warrant of fitnes. Because of it's age which is still relatively new, mine only needs to be done once a year - any cars older than a certain age need to get theirs once every six months. Thankfully because I look after my car it passed no problem.

On the corner of the main highway into Kohukohu is this sign on one of the shops saying "Kai to go". Kai is the Maori word for food also meaning to eat, consume, feed or partake so in other words they cook pizza, chips, fried fish etc. This town is one of my favourite little places to visit.
