Brunner Mine with reconditioned suspension bridge

The miners' memorial

In the clouds again, word to the wise when camping... wake up with dew in your moustache

After all the excitement last night we had a leisurely start and had breakfast at Brunner Mine, sadly the site of the largest mining disaster in New Zealand's history. 95 workers died when badly placed dynamite ignited a pocket of gas. A fitting memorial is now in place. We then headed via Greymouth (and a launderette) down the coast to Hokitika. Still solid.
