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 t
own 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.
