South Wairarapa Coast - Fishing village of Ngawi

Ngawi has a frontier-town feel about it. There's a ruggedness to the landscape, climate and character. No pub, no petrol station, and the nearest police station, 75km away in Featherston, is unmanned at night.
That can lead to a bit of vigilante justice and a recent event that hit the national headlines some out of town thieves were cornered up a hill and when the police arrived an hour later they sprinted down to the safety of the police car .. never happier to see police.

Just like Castlepoint which you saw earlier there is no harbour to moor boats so they dragged in and out of the tide. Castlepoint's flat beach is replaced by something more rugged, so instead of tractors of the Castlepoint

What a colorful picture these bulldozers make. It sounds like living there would be quite different than the 'norm'. I'm sure the towns people stick together again outsiders....sounds that way.....~smiling~

Yeah cool ... this little fishing village is about as wild west as you get in NZ .. but still they have a great sense of humour

Yes it's good to see that people still have fun. In Petrolia on the coast of California they take boats in and out this way up a big hill down to the ocean shoreline - It's fascinating to watch them work - of course their tractors are not so fun!
