You reckon? I was going to be ask why nobody else comments in the thread anymore. Are my photos really that bad? Or is it just that no one here is interested in this city... I'm thinking it's the latter

If it's any consolation, despite our earlier disagreements, I am still enjoying your photos of Christchurch. I was hoping to see still some photos of those caves at Clifton Beach.

They are bringing back some wonderful childhood memories. I always loved the bridge with the memorial arch (when I lived there you could still drive through it) and the Avon river in general.

Well at least some people are still viewing it, I guess that's the main thing. I don't think I have any photos of those caves, are you meaning Cave rock on the beach or the ones in the cliff behind the beach?

Hi Cartel, the cave rock on the beach itself. It's probably a lot smaller and less interesting than I remember, but it's just one of those things. When I was really young, I used to go to that beach and marvelled at the caves. Now, 18,000km away and a lot older, your thread brought back these memory's. For that I must thank you.

And please do keep the photos coming, almost all of them bring some sort of memory back, though of cause there are lots of changes. Besides, I'm sure others are enjoying them as well.

Hey Justme, these are all the pics of and around Cave rock that I have, hope they are to your liking. I know exactly what you mean, when I was younger I moved away from CHC and when I came back the cave seemed so much smaller... it's still cool that you can walk through it and it floods at high tide tho. Did you ever make it back to NZ since you moved? And if there's any other specific things u want pics of I'm happy to help if I can.

Public execution. And 100,000 turned out to watch...

I think it's classical sparks, sparks in the park or christmas in the park, can't remember which.

Just love it Cartel - don't worry about not getting lots of responses - people often just love to look. As frustrating as that is - it's just the way.

I really appreciate what you are doing.

PS - Christchurch is just FAB!!!!

I think so too! I also reckon you really have to know it well to appreciate it though. Come visit someday!

I clearly rememebered the footnote at the end of a book , and which reads as follows - For those who have not yet paid their first visit , its message is ," Be careful-you may be beginning a love affair with a city . " and the city is called - Christchurch !
__________________
We looked at mountains until dawn, and then when dawn came, it was too pretty for me - there was pink and blue and gold, in the sky, and on icy places, brilliant pink and gold flashes, and the snow was colored too, and I said," Oh," and sighed; and each moment was more beautiful than the one before; and I said, " I love you, Momma." Then I fell asleep in her arms.
That was happiness then.
