Hansen Park

April 28, 2016

Hansen Park is located next to the Heathcote River in Opawa and is very popular with walkers, joggers and dogs – I lost count of how many dogs were out being walked, and laughed at their antics, such as the golden retriever that jumped into the river and came out covered in mud (poor owner was fortunately laughing though). It’s a beautiful spot any time of the year but with the Autumn colours and the late afternoon sun it’s quite magical. Dogs and humans alike seemed very happy.

Autumnal Poplar Trees

I went for a walk up Ramahana Road which goes up hill to the suburb of Huntsbury. I had spotted the poplar trees from the flat and thought they looked photo-worthy. I ended up go up quite some distance – getting so high up that I was able to watch people walking along the Rapaki Track!

Taken with my long lens this is an interesting view of the city.

And finally – the Rapaki Track! I decided not to go up any further, as I was going to lose the light fairly quickly.

Bridge of Remembrance Re-Opening

April 25, 2016

A large crowd gathered to observe the Bridge of Remembrance re-opening today on Anzac Day. The bridge is a War Memorial was closed after our February 2011 earthquake and has since been strengthened (apparently it will now withstand a 1 in 2,000 year earthquake). So good to see another Christchurch landmark restored and to have so many people turn up to support this (crowd of around 1,000 people).

Bridle Path Track

This afternoon found me walking up the Bridle Path track. It’s steep, the gravel is slippery, but the views are always worth it.

At the top – Summit Road.

And the view – looking down into Lyttelton and over to Diamond Harbour.
