Ferrymead Bridge – for those of us that have to navigate this every day it’s going to be a huge relief to have the bridge open and the new lanes functioning. Last I heard it would be April this year – that’s after they started (I think) back in 2010!

Cyclists making their way along the Summit Road

I took a drive up to the Summit Road around dusk as I keep meaning to go up there and do some photos. I knew the sun set was not going to be amazing – as we didn’t have a nor’wester wind today. But this spot in the Port Hills is stunning in all light and weather.

I rather like this new building on Lichfield street with an interesting design (looks like the Avon River Loop) on laser cut steel.

The busker festival is on again and I finally got into Busker Park to have a look. This is Ruby Rubberlegs – I caught her contortionist act today. I had to look away a few times!

The Lemon Tree Cafe on St Asaph Street

January 23, 2015

Every time I walk past this cafe on St Asaph Street I think to myself I must go in there sometime. Well today I had the perfect excuse as I was working just down the road a bit and needed somewhere to have lunch.

The outside of the cafe really draws you in with the colourful planters and outdoor seating. But the magic is on the inside! Wow, what an eclectic mix of vintage furniture, artworks and décor, lots to look at. And the food and coffee was excellent too. And I wouldn’t lie about coffee being good, I’d just not mention it if it was bad. Yes, bit of a coffee snob.
