Shantytown

On our visit to the West Coast we spent a morning at the historic Shantytown, inspired by the New Zealand West Coast gold rushes of the 1860s.  Will loved the train and the playground, and we had a good time, too-- even got to pan for gold ourselves!  

An old steam train



the sign says: "Spare the rod, spoil the child!"

Panning for gold... !

Not exactly striking it rich, but pretty cool, nonetheless!
