The park recreates a miniature version of the Canterbury Plains and the braided river system with plantings of New Zealand native trees.
The rain came back today, but this section of Bridle Path Road is still beautiful even in the wet, and even if I slipped in some mud and landed foot first in a puddle and had to walk home with that wet sneaker feeling, it was still worth it!
Today I spent a lovely afternoon walking around the Groynes and taking a lot of photos of the local wildlife and scenery. Such a lovely place for a walk.
Christchurch had another lovely day today (thank goodness!). So I took the opportunity to go over to Governor’s Bay (about a 15 minute drive away over the Port Hills). I did the foreshore walk along the beach (it’s about 3.5 kms). It’s a lovely spot with bellbirds singing their little hearts out and fantails flitting around.
