The Old Post Office Guest House


One of the local icons in the nearby town of Paparoa is this historic building called The Old Post Office Guest House. Built in 1903 it was originally a post office for the town made of Kauri with an iron roof. Next door to it use to be a butcher's and a saddlery, both of which are no longer there, but this one has been renovated and is now a bed and breakfast. It is now managed by a lovely couple named Deb and Kelvin.

News from me: I finally got one of the jobs I went for, start training next week - looking forward to it.  And if someone could send some fine weather instead of the constant rain that'd be great. What's news with you?

What a great idea for the old post office to be converted into a bed and breakfast. You won't want the weather that we have, it's rain. :(
Glad to hear the good news that you got one of the jobs you went for. Good luck!

I wonder if the Guest House is new as I don't recall it. Good news with the job. Do you have to go to Whangarei ? I know you went for an interview here. It's not only the rain but bitter today.

I wish I could send some of the Arizona sunshine your way. Congrats on the new job.

I love it when the old buildings are renovated and preserved. After two solid months of visitors (very much enjoyed) I'm off to Glasgow in an hour or two.

It's always nice to see these gorgeous old buildings repurposed like this, looks gorgeous painted in my favourite colour 😉 Well done on the job front Amy, I had no doubts it wouldn't take too long till you got one. I'm wishing the sunshine your way as I type 💛

Congrats on the new job. I'll send you better weather as soon as we get out of the rain down here.

On the spot

I've noticed all around the West Coast these little dairies/shops are dotted in some of the smaller towns. Can't call them a Four Sq...
