This is a chain of motels, we should take more often, because they are always well located and have a good price performance and everything is nice and tidy.

... south back through Greymouth and down towards Hokatiki where we were staying tonight. The railway and the road entwined as we headed south and at one point actually shared the same single lane bridge. We had to pause at the end and check for traffic coming towards us as well as trains going in either direction. We then started across the bridge hoping a train didn't suddenly appear. Eventually we arrived at the Shining Star Beachfront Accommodation where we ...
