The Taylor and Opawa Rivers
My World do check out all the other wonderful posts from around the world.
The Taylor River flows through the town of Blenheim, splitting and becoming the Opawa river. There has been a beautification done in the centre close to town that looks really good and is used quite a lot. There is a new cafe on the river bank, and several small river boats take partying revellor out for fun times, plus there is a much larger boat that take tours up and down the whole river while serving gormet produce from our district in delicious meals.
This was taken on a very rainy day from the Cafe, only ducks making use of the area today.
Kayakers enjoy the fun on the river, taking care to dodge the fountain spray.
A nice crinoline shaped bridge gives access to the opposite side of the river.
