Stewart Island Place Names …… 

Laura's Leg

Rupena Wera …..   “The Burnt Pigeon” perhaps a culinary miss-adventure

 

Laura’s Leg  …… One of those odd Island names whose origin is lost. Who Laura is is forgotten. and perhaps she hurt her leg, or perhaps even showed a bit more leg than  generally was seen as respectable back in the days of long skirts.

Sails Ashore and Kowhai Lane are Solar Powered

Sails Ashore now produces 100 % of our electrical needs, and have cut our non renewable heating fuel usage to around 20% of pre solar.
Kowhai Lane is "Grid Tied" and exports excess electricity to the local grid.
Both have significantly reduced our carbon footprint
