Beautiful Tree on Oxford Terrace

May 11, 2017

This stunning tree stands on the corner of Oxford Terrace and Kilmore Street by the Avon river. I always admire it when I drive by. I was hoping to capture it in the late afternoon sunshine, but it clouded. Apparently the tree is a Gingko biloba (Maidenhair Tree)

Autumnal Trees on New Brighton Road

May 10, 2017

Bit of a dull day today, but I had to stop to take a few snaps of the lovely row of trees on New Brighton Road (just up from the Palms Mall).

Christchurch Justice and Emergency Services Precinct

May 8, 2017

The Christchurch Justice and Emergency Services Precinct is really coming along now with some decorative glass going up recently along the side of the building.

This initiative makes me feel that Christchurch will be one of the safer cities to live in within New Zealand (in fact it probably already is that due to the rebuild) – and when the Alpine Fault eventually goes Christchurch will be in an excellent position to provide support to its own citizens while also responding to emergencies in other parts of the South Island (most likely the West Coast). There’s been several articles recently about the risks of the Alpine Fault going – see http://www.stuff.co.nz/the-press/news/90364889/magnitude82-the-disaster-scenario-on-new-zealands-most-dangerous-fault for an example.

Here’s a video fly-over from the official website:

Cruisy Days Diner, Oxford

May 7, 2017

Step back in time to 1950’s America at Cruisy Days Diner. Wow, what a fun place to have lunch on a Sunday with a bunch of friends. We all stuffed ourselves full of crly fries, onion rings and milkshakes. Highly recommended, but make sure you book – it’s busy.
