Weekend walkabout hosted by KB. Again a walk on the beach because it was so, so hot and walking with your feet through the water relieved a little heat.
After we had a walk on Sumner beach we drove up the hill to make a picture of South Brighton. Last time we walked on the far end to the right of the picture on Brighton beach. You can also see the Nor'west arch clearly. It shows a blue belt with a cloud stream above it. It is typical for the Canterbury region in New Zealand and it means very dry hot weather and today we reached a top temperature of 40 degrees celsius (104 degrees fahrenheit) which is an unusually hot for Christchurch.

I love the rocky shore
This one lost some bits and pieces during the quake
The cave rock in Sumner with the lighthouse on top. The Maoris called the rock Tuawera which means "cut down as if by fire", which means that many people had died by eating the flesh of a whale that stranded here.The rock represent the whale and is therefore a sacred place to the Maoris.
