Lyttelton harbour

                                                                

                   Weekend walkabout in lyttelton Harbour

                    Weekend walkabout is hosted by KB




Christchurch not only has its own airport but also its own harbour. Lyttelton Harbour which is one of our favourite places. It is like a little town with a town centre and farmers market on a Saturday. Lots of artist live here and there are cosy cafes.


We walked up to Timeball station in Lyttelton from which you have a great view.


View on Diamond harbour


A long train is driving into the harbour bringing kohl  from the mines on the West coast


About 1200 ships visit Lyttelton each year and we see more and more cruise ships coming in which is good for Christchurch


London Street, the main street in Lyttelton Can you see the big crack on the theater on the right

One of my favourite cafes with an atmosphere. Jazzy music is playing on the background and we settled down on an old couch ( an ouwe zooi vond mijn broer toen we op het terras erachter zaten :)  )
  mmm this was my lunch ; a quiche with pumpkin and other yummy stuff
