This is the view from our bedroom window this weekend, from the bach we were staying in. Coulter and Coulter were off on the road at the Martinbourgh fair, and I left it to late to book accommodation. So we ended up in Featherston. The only house I could find in the whole of the Wairarapa.
The batch was fantastic, really clean and tidy and relaxing. Below is the room my son stayed in.
Fetherston has always been just another town that we have driven through on the way to or from Wellington. So it was good to get the chance to walk around and explore. At first it seemed like a really run down town.
But with some fantastic typical Kiwi buildings. I so love this type of iconic Railway hotel building.
I could have spent all day photographing old windows with peeling paint.
And as for Pizza, almost for a moment Callum was thinking mmmm yum Pizza.
Then we looked closer through the window and I don't think anyone has been in there for a very, very long time.
So it was great to see that there are some great new cafes and cool shops setting up there. If you have not stopped in Featherston yet, you should do, it won't take long.
