Christchurch – Part 3

Next we wanted to see friends. Facebook is one thing, but it’s so much better to actually see the people you care about and sit with them around a table having a pink cider and gossiping about all of life’s little intricacies! So we found a likely looking venue …

… and commenced with the pink cider drinking. Mmm … berries … All was right with the world.

Except for the bit where I was offered a ride in a friends car, so jumped up and excitedly ran outside forgetting to take my camera with me to show you all how AWESOME this car is, because, well, look at it!?!

That is an electric car. An electric car that J built. And I rode in it. And it was silent. And it was, nay IS amazing! Dodgy photo by Himself, on his phone.

Friday was an exciting day where us girls got together and drove around Christchurch … (this is the sheep paddock next to the airport) …

… looking at all the changes …

… and experiencing how all the drivers have become remarkably polite now that road closures are normal and unpredictable.

Until we got tired of it all and decided to go shopping instead.

Then even that got too much and we went for a leisurely lunch.

The cider may have been a bit much for a poor wee Pukeko to deal with! But he did enjoy how close the picturesque arcade was to sheep paddock!

There was more stunning art to be seen …

… and no trip to Christchurch is complete until you’ve seen the penguin bus!

With this sighting it was time for us to head out of town for a night.

Where do you think we headed to?

  1. Poor Pukeko looks knackered. So much excitement. I love the picture of the arcades and sheep paddock. The contrast in colours and textures is very cool (and shades on those hills remind me a bit of home).

  2. MISSGOLDFISH!!!!!!!!!!!
    You went drinking inside the TARDIS and then for a drive in the Delorean (I see that flux capacitor)!!!!!!!
    Love love love
