I often see these shags sitting on the fence by the estuary just under the bridge. I find them quite comical.

Pink Sugar Opening in Oxford

October 18, 2014

Pink Sugar is located in Oxford (a rural town located about 40 minutes north of Christchurch). It is a vintage high tea cafe and eatery serving high teas, Devonshire teas, as well as cabinet food. They don’t officially open until Monday the 20th of October, but I got along to the official ‘ribbon cutting’ opening.

I absolutely love what Sally the owner has created here. She had a vision for a vintage tea shop and she has nailed it perfectly – from the chandeliers, the pink and soft blue floral wall paper, the gorgeous fine bone china, fine teas, and absolutely delicious food. I have no doubt that this new venture will be a roaring success and I look forward to many afternoon visits out there to enjoy the ambience.

Pink Sugar is located at 76 Main St, Oxford.

You can learn more about Pink Sugar at there Facebook page.

A neighbourhood cat

One of the many cats in our neighbourhood. I find a lot of the cats are not very friendly and prefer to just ignore or run away from me. Perhaps they know I’m much more of a dog person. We do seem to have a lot of cats around though.
