I finally got down to the food trucks and stalls in Cathedral Square tonight. What a lovely warm evening with plenty of people enjoying the music and food selection.

Earthquake Memorial

February 23, 2017

I decided to go and see the earthquake memorial this evening, as it a beautiful late summer evening. It seems that many people had the same idea – with may people taking the time to visit as well. It really does make the most of it’s position with the sun shining on the wall and terracing and the gentle sound of the Avon river flowing through the city.

Sixth Anniversary of the February 22nd Earthquake

February 22, 2017

Flowers in the Avon River in remembrance of the day our city changed forever and 185 people lost their lives, with many more injured and traumatized. To mark the day, I attended the memorial service and the unveiling of the Canterbury Earthquake National Memorial. As you can see from my photo, I didn’t get very close to the memorial – like many others, I sat on the grass in the park with friends and watched the memorial on the large screen. It was a very moving ceremony.

A daytime view of some of the lanterns in Hagley park. No doubt they will look fabulous tonight in the dark.
