We then took the scenic detour through Brighton and along the coast road stopping at a reserve for lunch in the quaint & sleepy little fishing village of Tairei Mouth on the banks of the Tairei River.
The wharf had an assortment of boats and stacks of crab & crayfish pots. I love Kiwi ingenuity, when you need a cab on your tractor to keep out the winter chills, you build it! And that hedge looks like it's been cut to within a inch of it's life!
Yes, life at Taieri Mouth runs at a much slower pace than elsewhere. Just the place to come back to & stop awhile longer.
