Isn’t see beautiful? This is a jersey cow surrounded by South Suffolk sheep. They live at Kaituna Homestead in the Kaituna Valley which is located about 40 minutes out of Christchurch on the way to Akaroa.
Chickens and geese.
This is Noodle. She’s a little shy but after about 10 minutes of checking me out, I got a little wet nudge on my hand to say she’s ready for her pat.
After the animals were all feed it was time for the humans to have scones with jam and cream! Yum!
Snowdrops in Hagley Park is a sure sign that Spring is not far off. Now that I’ve said that I’ve probably summoned a cold southerly change and snow!
This is a boring photo for most people, but exciting for people like me who used to use the Towpath track in Ferrymead. Before the earthquakes you could walk off the Ferrymead Bridge and onto the track – but that got shut down and the track got overgrown after the quakes. But as you can see they are now working on this section and from what I’ve seen of the plans there will be a nice path joining up with the track for cyclists.
I love antique and curio shops, they are just so fascinating to walk around, but they can be injurious to the bank account if you are not careful or have a weakness for things you don’t need but really really want! The Ferry Antique Centre recently opened in this building on Ferry Road – a number of antique dealers had all been sharing a building in Woolston – but it was pretty cramped in there. Now they have lots of room and there is a lot to look at. Definitely worth a visit on a Saturday afternoon.
