Seat at Taylor’s Mistake

This seat looks out over Taylor’s Mistake beach. Taylor’s Mistake is a great beach just a short drive from Sumner Village.

    Hey hi, Christchurch is such a beautiful place. I chanced upon your blog from Eric’s Paris site. And that stone chair, it looks so lonely by the sea!

    Is Christchurch a crowded place?

    Have you visited The Strange Republic? If you like it, recommend it to your friends!

    Taylor’s Mistake is an odd name for a beach. I wonder how that happened? Nice bench. Nobody can carry that off.

    I found a webcam of Taylor’s Mistake beach at – according to this site the beach got its name as “Captain Taylor sailed into the bay by mistake in 1858. His intended destination was Lyttelton Harbour next door”.

    Photolicious – Christchurch has over 300,000 people, but it’s not at all crowded. In fact when I am out taking my photos I sometimes wonder where everyone is!

    As for the bench seat, I think it’s a memorial seat dedicated to a couple and their dog – as there is a plaque with a dog on it. It’s a really popular walking track and if you check out the webcam you’ll see the area is really stunning, and the little baches (holiday homes) are very cute. I may go back there this weekend and take some shots of the baches and surfers.
