Now that I have my wheels, and passengers, ready for the road, it’s time to resume my gallivanting; first of all with a look in the rear view mirror, so you can see some of the jaunts I took during my 17 day blogcation.
In the midst of my not very busy holiday schedule, on a not very nice weather day, my friends and I had a short interlude in the centre of Christchurch; short because interludes usually are, but, also, because it was a beastly cold day, not suited to our yet to adjust, lingering-in-summer, bodies.
Cold, as it was, and we were, we did see a little of the fun side of the city. Here is my record of the day.
The Chalice, our millennium statue, sometimes referred to as the ice cream cone.
Art work wrapping around the ruins.
Portrait let out to play, from the Art Gallery.
Is She amused by events?
Pretty tiles replicated and replaced on New Regent Street.
Oh, it is a lovely playground we have in our city.
This post was prompted by Sally at http://lensandpensbysally.wordpress.com/ who alerted me to a New York Times article http://www.nytimes.com/2014/04/06/travel/after-earthquakes-a-creative-rebirth-in-christchurch.html ,published on April 6th, about the creative rebirth of Christchurch, post earthquakes. It is an excellent article. Thank you Sally. I only wish you had been with me to focus your camera on the intriguing sights we saw, on our city excursion, at the beginning of April.
