A walk around the City

Ever since we arrived in Christchurch, we’ve wanted to take a walk around and explore the heart of the city.With the arrival of the summer holidays for the boys…we switched gears and moved on to a very relaxed and spontaneous mode.
Nothing is usually planned.We just grab something to eat, hop into the car and drive. It helps that you don’t have to drive for a long time before you reach the city.
We sat by a tree and had our picnic then simply walked around , snapping pictures of whatever caught my eye and taking in the old world charm, the place exudes.DSC 7834

and reminders of the city's resilience throughout ,with the Christchurch Stand Tall Art Giraffes.
I read in a brochure that there are 49 Giraffes around Christchurch. A lot of people, I know, have gone on a sculpture hunting trail. I wanted too as well, but that hasn't happened yet.
