Lovely day for the beach today – warm but not too hot and little wind. Unfortunately I couldn’t stay long!

Circus Firemen – World Buskers Festival

January 24, 2016

Other than getting to one of the comedy nights (see Urzila Carson if you get the chance – she’s one very funny lady), I’ve missed most of the buskers festival (as days of it were rained out). I’ve always loved the festival, but have to say that since it’s been in Hagley Park and not the central city, I’ve not made the same effort to see it. For me, it lost something – as I really enjoyed the serendipity of turning round a street corner and finding an act about to start and finding myself drawn into their performance. Hopefully in years to come, we’ll see them back in the city centre again.

A Cycle Ride from Ferrymead to Lincoln

January 23, 2016

Today, I joined my friend Emma on a bike ride to Lincoln. I left from Ferrymead and met Emma in Opawa. I took the tow path track to get to Garlands road and then went through the park and followed the river to Opawa. We then embarked on our bike ride. We weren’t quite sure of our route, as we were not familiar with the cycle routes – so we had a few dead ends where the cycle path disappeared!

One of the underpasses on the motorway section of the cycle paths – decorated with colourful murals.

The section from Prebbleton to Lincoln is all off road cycling – it’s awesome

We’ve made it to Lincoln!

We treated ourselves to lunch at the wonderful Laboratory bar and Restaurant.

We cycled back through Cashmere and had to stop for an icecream.20160123_153147

We made a trip down Tennyson Street to check out the cycle path that’s completed separate from traffic and footpath (it’s about 10 years old apparently).

Ferrymead Park Walk

January 20, 2016

After days of rain we’ve got the sunshine and blue skies of summer back! So I headed out for a walk through Ferrymead park today – a popular place to go for a walk, run or take the dogs out for some exercise.

Mailbox Library on Hereford Street

January 18, 2016

This community library has been around a while – so it must be quite popular as there’s always books in it. There are a few little street libraries around Christchurch and they all seem to be well cared for.
