Stanleys Hotel

Cosy coffee stop on our homeward journey yesterday from Palmerston, East Otago. Stanleys Hotel, Macraes. New Zealand. “Since 1882”. The warmth of the fire much appreciated on what was a grey, cold, rainy day.

This is a remote old gold mining area, now a major modern gold mining area.

The hotel has a motto “While I live I crow”.
And I say YEAH! πŸ˜€

The fine company I keep …
